The decanter will have a volume of

You can actually get the volume you need by using dimensional analysis, and by using the formula for density separately. Here's how you'd go about determining the volume you need by dimensional analysis

The first conversion factor goes from pounds to grams, while the second goes from grams to mL. The key here is to recognize that density is actually

The other way you can solve it is by using the formula for density

You can use a single conversion factor to determine the weight in grams

Then plug this value in the formula

As you can see, the only difference between these two methods is that in the first one you *multiply* by *divide* by
