• Wait.... I'm confused..... What does 2L means again?
• 2L just means 2 liters. L is short for liters, the basic metric measurement for amounts of fluid, and 2 liters (2L) is a standard size for a large bottle of soda.
• So most of that word problem was just pointless? Then why does the creator even put it in there?
• So you are able to find out what information you might need to use yourself. In real world problems, you often have a lot more information available than you need so it's an important skill to teach.
• Jack has 5 soda cans and he gives 5 away how many soda cans does jack have left
• Jack has 0 soda cans because he had 5 but he gave away 5. So for this we do subtraction, and 5-5=0 :D

Hope you have a wonderful day
