WINE EQUIVALENTS=1glass of 12% alcohol=1&1/3 rd glasses!

Hi,
12 = 8 + 4 = 8 + ^{1}/_{2} (8) which is one and one half times 8. Thus, in terms of alcohol content, one glass of 12% wine is equivalent to one and one half glasses of 8% wine. Hence 6 glasses of 12% wine is equivalent to one and one half times 6, which is 9 glasses of 8% wine.
