  • 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.

  • Tiffy

    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

  • Dude

    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.
