59.4 mL

Work Step by Step

Fuel left after landing, in milliliters Fuel left is 2 fluid ounces. Use unit fraction (1 qt)/(32 fl oz) to convert fluid ounces into quart. 2 fl oz * (1 qt)/(32 fl oz) = 1/16 qt. Now we’re changing from a U.S capacity unit to a metric capacity unit. In the “U.S. to Metric Units” side of the table, you see that 1 quart = 0.95 liter. Use Unit fraction (0.95 L)/(1 qt) and next use unit fraction (1000 mL)/(1 L) to change L to mL. Multiply 1/16 qt times the unit fraction 1/16 qt * (0.95 L)/(1 qt) *(1000 mL)/(1 L) = 950/16 mL = 59.375 mL = 59.4 mL
