# Containers of Water Diluted

Please see the attachment for a visual depiction of the containers. Please calculate the dilution factors for all five containers and show all the work. Thanks!

Five containers of water, numbered 1 to 5, are placed in a line:

Container #1 contains 5 ml of water.

Container #2 contains 1 ml of water.

Container #3 contains 99 ml of water.

Container #4 contains 20 ml of water.

Container #5 contains 10 ml of water.

At the beginning, 1ml of concentrated cell solution is poured into test tube #1. Then 0.5 ml of the solution from container #1 is poured into test tube #2. Then, 2 ml of the solution from container #2 is poured into container #3. Then, 1 ml of the solution from container #3 is poured into container #4. Then, 3 ml of the solution from container #4 is poured into container #5.
