$\textcolor{red}{\text{1.5 Liters}}$

#### Explanation:

In order to compute the number of liters in 1500 milliliters, we're going to use dimensional analysis (method that allows you to convert from one unit of measurement to another by cancelling out unwanted units) and the relationship below:

For questions like this I use the following technique:

$\text{Quantity Given" xx "Conversion Factor" = "Quantity Sought}$

color(gold)("Quantity Given:" 1500 mL

color(magenta)("Conversion Factor:" 1000

color(brown)("Quantity Sought:" Liters

Let's plug in our values:

1500cancel"mL"xx(1L)/(1000cancel"mL") = $1.5 L$
