A punch recipe calls for 1.5 L of fruit juice and 700mL of gingerale. How much fruit...

This is a proportions problem, Fruit Juice / Gingerale. First, get all your units the same, so 700ml = .7 L. Now set up the proportion:
1.5 L Fruit Juice / .7 L Gingerale = x L Fruit Juice / 2.5 L Gingerale, so
1.5 / .7 = x / 2.5
.7x = 1.5 * 2.5
.7x = 3.75
x = 5.36 L

Lets convert liters to milliliters
So, 1.5L= 1500ml
This involves direct proportion
multiply by 2500ml
= 5.357 L
