x/4000ml=11/12

x=3666.7mL

why is the answer 333mL?

**Damon**, Saturday, January 9, 2010 at 5:32pmThis is an infinite geometric series and the sum of the series is one liter

Sum = 1000 mL = g/(1-r) where r=11/12 and g is the first term, what we want.

so

1000 = g/(1/12)

g = 1000/12 = 83.33 mL

times 4
