Answer: 640c – 6.25s – 8.75g===============================================

Work Shown:

s = number of small cups

g = number of large cups

c = number of coolers

———-

1 cooler = 640 fluid ounces

c coolers = 640c fluid ounces

1 small cup = 6.25 fluid ounces

s small cups = 6.25s fluid ounces

1 large cup = 8.75 fluid ounces

g large cups = 8.75g fluid ounces

———-

T = total amount of water poured

T = (amount from small cups) + (amount from large cups)

T = 6.25s+8.75g

L = amount of water left

L = (original total amount of water) – (amount of water poured out)

L = 640c – T

L = 640c – (6.25s+8.75g)

L =

640c – 6.25s – 8.75g
