# A bucket holds 1 gallon of water. The water is poured into 10 equal-sized containers and there are 54 ounces left. How much does each of the smaller containers hold?

$7.1$ fluid

#### Explanation:

From the above we see that 1 gallon is the same volume as 128 fluid ounces.

The amount left over is 57 fluid ounces.

The amount distributed over the 10 containers is
$128 - 57 = 71 \text{ fluid ounces}$

10 containers so each container volume is $\frac{71}{10} = 7.1$ fluid ounces
