Thread: SAT question

  1. #1

    Default SAT question

    can anyone help me with the math on this? I have had six 8.2 % of 16 ounce beers, the average bottle of wine is 12% and 26 and 2/3rds ounces, how many bottles of wine would you need to consume as much alcohol as 6 of these beers? Not that I am drunk, lol, . I'm headed for the scotch...but first I'm having another beer, well make that 2, took me a while to post this, 8 of these 8.2% alcohol, content beers, how many bottles of wine?

    For the beer:
    16oz per can of beer * 8.2% alcohol content = 1.312oz of alcohol per can * 6 cans = 7.872 oz alcohol for all six cans

    For the wine:
    26.666 oz per bottle * 12% alcohol content = 3.199 oz alcohol per bottle


    7.872 oz of alcohol (from the beer) / 3.199 oz alcohol per bottle of wine = 2.46 bottles of wine

    I had the scotch at the hotel, so all I had to do is find my room. I may have been to drunk to do the math last nite, but I figured one thing out this morning. 18 ounces of straight 80% scotch after eight 8.2% 16 ounce beers = one nice headache in the morning.
