Nov 14, 2016

$1 \frac{1}{24}$ cups per minute

#### Explanation:

As $1$ cup is equal to $8$ fluid ounces

$1000$ fluid ounces per $2$ hours mean

$\frac{1000}{8} = 125$ cups per $2$ hours or

$\frac{125}{2}$ cups per hour or in $60$ minutes

i.e. $\frac{125}{2 \times 60}$ cups per minute

or $\frac{125}{2 \times 60} = \frac{25 \cancel{125}}{2 \times 12 \cancel{60}} = \frac{25}{24}$ or $1 \frac{1}{24}$ cups per minute.
