$$V=2\dfrac{3}{4}\ \text{ounces}$$

Step-by-step explanation:

It is given that,

Mr. Cooper has 8 1/4 ounces of a chemical solution.

He will put an equal amount of the solution into 3 test tubes. We need to find the amount of solution in each test tube. It can be done by dividing total volume and 3.

$$V=\dfrac{8\dfrac{1}{4}}{3}\\\\V=\dfrac{33}{4\times 3}\\\\V=\dfrac{11}{4\ }\ \text{ounces}\\\\\text{or}\\\\V=2\dfrac{3}{4}\ \text{ounces}$$

So, the volume in each test tube is $$2\dfrac{3}{4}\ \text{ounces}$$.
