An aquarium is leaking water at the rate of 3 quarts per day. How many fluid ounces of water is this each hour?

(1) Answers

The relevant information is that one quart is equal to 32 ounces.  This means that every day 3 quarts, or 3*32=96 ounces leak.  Per hour this is 96/24=4 (we have to divide the day into 24 parts, because there are 24 hours in a day).  This means that every hour 4 ounces of water leak.
