## Filling GlassesMath brain teasers require computations to solve.Joey has 8 drinking glasses, all of different sizes. He has lined them up from smallest to largest and numbered them #1 (smallest) to #8 (largest). He knows that glass #4 holds 10 ounces and that glass #7 holds a pint, or 16 ounces. Now he wants to figure out how much all the others hold!
He experiments by filling up different glasses with water and pouring the water back and forth into other glasses. Here are his results: Pouring water from glasses #1 and #2 filled glass #4. Pouring water from glasses #1 and #3 filled glass #5. Pouring water from glasses #2 and #3 filled glass #6. Pouring water from glasses #1 and #5 filled glass #7. Pouring water from glasses #1 and #7 filled glass #8. Pouring water twice from glass #3 filled glass #7. Pouring water twice from glass #4 filled glass #8. How much water does each glass hold? ## What Next?
