    Can someone tell me if these decimal placings are correct?

    I need to interpret readings on the type of measuring jug in the attached picture in lites. Just so i know If i am right in the way i have done it, can someone check my answers below in comparison to the corresponding letters on the picture. i have photo edited in a,b,c,d marks which are just random measurements. I would be truly grateful.

    here are my answers:

    A- 2125ml=2.125litres - there is only one notch between 2100ml and 2200ml, therefore i assume this is 50ml. therefore A is half way between so 25.??

    B-1775ml = 1.775litres ??

    C- 1350 = 1.350 litres ??

    d = 350 ml = 0.35 litres ??

    happy new year

    1000 ml = 1 liter

    therefore:

    500 ml = 0.5 liters
    250 mil = 0.25 liters (250 is 1/4 of 1000, see?)

    yes, your decimal point is in the right place on all 4.
