Help, please!

Answer:

#3.75# gallons

Explanation:

# 10/10 - 9/10 = 1/10#

#1/10# = space remaining so

#1/10 = 6" cups" # so

# (6" cups")/ ("total cups" ) = 1/10#

Solve for total cups:

# "total cups" xx ((6c)/("total cups")) = (1/10) xx"total cups" #

# 6 "cups" = ("total cups")/10#

# 10 xx(6 "cups") = (("total cups")/10) xx10#

# 10 xx 6"cups" = "total cups"#

total cups = 60

He has made 60 cups of sports drink

16 cups = 1 gallon.

#60 "cups" xx (1 " gallon")/(16 " cups") = 3.75 " gallons"#
