I love chocolate and coffee. I begin by making one cup of hot chocolate. I drink half of my cup and then I fill the cup with coffee. I stir the new mixture and drink half of the cup and then fill the cup again with coffee. I continue this pattern until I have consumed two full cups of the hot liquid. When I fill the cup again with coffee, how much of my original hot chocolate remains in my cup?
