Answer:

Do you mean #70# #cL#?

Explanation:

Bottles of spirits used to be #750# #mL#, now they are #700# #mL#. i.e. #0.70# #L# (obviously the volume has reduced because of expense, and of course most of us drink too much!).

So, what's a #cL#? #1# #cL# #=# #10^-2L# #=# #10# #mL#. (Why? #1# #L# #=# #1000*mL# #=# #100xx10*mL# #=# #100# #cL#

So #70# #cL# #=# #70xx10*mL# #=# #700# #mL#.

Note that bottles of wine still hold a #750# #mL# volume of vino. How many #cL# is this?
