A:
Answer:67.53 kiloliters.[tex]20\%\text{ of }\$7.95=\$1.59[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:We have been given that the capacity of the molten sea, a furnishing of the temple, is given as 2000 baths. First of all, we will convert 2000 baths into gallons by multiplying 2000 with 8.92.[tex]2000\text{ Baths}\times \frac{\text{8.92 gallons}}{\text{Bath}}=2000\times{\text{8.92 gallons}=17,840{\text{ gallons}[/tex]We know that 1 gallon equals 0.00378541 kiloliters, so we will multiply 17,840 by 0.00378541.[tex]17,840{\text{ gallons}\times \frac{\text{0.00378541 Kiloliters}}{\text{gallon}}[/tex][tex]17,840\times 0.00378541\text{ Kiloliters}[/tex][tex]67.5317144\text{ Kiloliters}\approx 67.53\text{ Kiloliters}[/tex] Therefore, the Molten sea hold 67.53 kiloliters.We can find 20% of $7.95 as shown below:[tex]20\%\text{ of }\$7.95=\frac{20}{100}\times\$7.95[/tex][tex]20\%\text{ of }\$7.95=0.20\times\$7.95[/tex][tex]20\%\text{ of }\$7.95=\$1.59[/tex]Therefore, 20% of $7.95 would be $1.59.
