For her birthday party, Melonie wants to make a punch drink made with 2 1/2 gallons orange juice, 4 quarts cranberry juice, and 3 quarts apple juice. How much punch will she make?
In order to calculate the total volume of punch Melonie made, we'll need to convert the volume so that they are all in the same unit.
1 gallon = 4 quart
Volume of punch = total volume of fruit juices = 10 + 4 + 3 = 17 quarts
