14 ounces, 8 + 4= 12 ounces and if 1 bottle weighs 12 Onces
1 bottle = 12 Ounces
1/2 bottle – 6
12 + 6 = 18
18 Ounces is the answer.
Nope, that’s not it. Keep trying.
24 ounces is the weight of a bottle and a half
16 ounces + 8 ounces (half of 16 ounces) = 24 ounces
16 ounces is the weight of a bottle
8 ounces + 8 ounces (half of 16 ounces) = 16 ounces
Tiffy, You are correct.
24 ounces: the bottle weighs 16 ounces.
As a bottle weighs eight ounces plus half a bottle we can write this as:
B = 8 + ½B
Take ½ from both sides to get:
½B = 8
So B = 16, which means B + ½B = 24
You are today’s winner.
