    Stan drinks 12 ounces of water in 1 hour

    Solution:

    Given that,

    Stan drinks 3/4 of a 8 ounce glass of water in 1/2 of an hour

    Which means,

    \frac{3}{4}\ of\ 8\ ounce = \frac{1}{2}\ hour

    \frac{3}{4} \times 8 = 0.5\ hour\\

    Therefore,

    6 ounces is drank in 0.5 hour

    We have to find the water he drinks in an hour

    Let “x” be the water he drinks in 1 hour

    Thus we get,

    6 ounce = 0.5 hour

    x ounces = 1 hour

    This forms a proportion and we can solve the sum by cross multiplying

    6 \times 1 = 0.5 \times x\\\\0.5x = 6\\\\x = \frac{6}{0.5}\\\\x = 12

    Thus, he drinks 12 ounces of water in 1 hour
