    12 liters of fruit.

    88 liters of ginger ale.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    100 = g + f

    130 = 1g + 1.5f

    f = 12

    because u can use elimination by multiplying equation 2 by - 1 to cancel out g variable then combine both equations

    g = 88

    because plug in f's value of 12 to 1st equation then subtract 12 from each side
