Problem of the Week
Problem A
Perfect Punch

Su is going to make punch for her friends. She wants to mix \(3\) L of orange juice, \(1\) L of pop, \(\frac{1}{2}\) L of grape juice, and \(300\) mL of cranberry juice in a punch bowl.

  1. To avoid spilling, Su plans to use a punch bowl with a capacity of at least \(200\) mL more than the liquid it holds. What is the smallest capacity that her punch bowl should have?

  2. Su has cups that can each hold \(300\) mL of punch. How many of these cups can she fill with the punch she makes?
