Conversion from grams/liter to volume of the container

I have a problem that need your help. This is not my homework, it is a friend of my who needs to solve this for his project. Here is the description below:

The product is in powder form (like baking soda). The label weight of the package is 8oz (227grams). The density is 300 grams/liter. What is the minimal volume of the container that is required to fill this product?

Hint: find the overflow capacity of the container

Welcome to the PF. This belongs in the Homework Help section anyway, since it is for schoolwork. (I moved it)

If the density is 300 grams/liter, and you have 227 grams, then how much of a liter will that fill? A liter is a measure of volume.

Yes, then how much of a liter will that fill?

My friend came up with this but don't know if this correct.

8oz converted to gram is 227g
227g / 300 g per litter = 0.7567 liter
1 liter = 33.81402 oz
then 0.7567 liter x 33.81402 oz per liter = 25.587 oz
Then 25.587 oz x 1.10 = 28.15 oz

The 0.757 liter number looks correct. But where did the 1.10 come from?

You can ignore this 1.10 number.

8oz converted to gram is 227g
227g / 300 g per litter = 0.7567 liter
1 liter = 33.81402 oz
then 0.7567 liter x 33.81402 oz per liter = 25.587 oz
