Write the answer to 2,300 milliliters plus 1.05 cubic decimeters in liters.

In order to answer this question, we need to recall some of the conversions when dealing with units of capacity and volume. Firstly, there are 1,000 milliliters in one liter. As we want to write our answer in liters, we can convert 2,300 milliliters into liters by dividing by 1,000. This is equal to 2.3, as all the digits move three places to the right. 2,300 milliliters is equal to 2.3 liters.

We also recall that one cubic decimeter is equal to one liter. This comes from the fact that there is one cubic centimeter in one milliliter. As 1,000 milliliters equals one liter and 1,000 cubic centimeters equals one cubic decimeter, then one cubic decimeter must be equal to one liter. 1.05 cubic decimeters is, therefore, equal to 1.05 liters.

To calculate the answer to this question, we need to add 2.3 and 1.05. This is equal to 3.35. The answer to 2,300 milliliters plus 1.05 cubic decimeters is 3.35 liters.
