    For this case we propose a rule of three. We assume that the excess water received was in one day. So:

    \frac {3} {4} cup ——> 100%

    x —————————-> 25%

    Where “x” represents excess water.

    x = \frac {25 * \frac {3} {4}} {100}\\x = \frac {\frac {75} {4}} {100}\\x = \frac {75} {400}\\x = \frac {15} {80}\\x = \frac {3} {16}

    Thus, the excess water is \frac {3} {16}cups.

    Then, in one day you receive in total:

    \frac {3} {4} + \frac {3} {16} = \frac {16 * 3 + 4 * 3} {16 * 4} = \frac {48 + 12} {64} = \frac {60 } {64} = \frac {15} {4}cups of water.

    Answer:

    \frac {15} {4} cups of water
