    Lemonade Problem.

    We have 10000 people, who want 2 cups of pink lemonade each.
    The cup size is 354ml.
    The lemondade bottles are 2000ml.
    The pink cordial botltles are also 2000ml.
    For every 2000ml of lemonade we only need 15ml of pink cordial.
    How many bottles of lemonade and pink cordial are needed?

    Here's a start.

    10,000 people with 2 cups each gives total cups being 20,000.

    Total volume of pink lemonade required is 7,080,000 ml

    Now only 15ml per cup is to be cordial i.e 15/254 = 4%, that means 96% of the cup is lemonade.

    So what is 4% and 96% of 7,080,000? How many bottles is then required?
