With this practice question, I'm not sure what to do here...I have the answer, but I'm just not understanding how it is the answer. The examples in the book seems vague with no explanations.

The book's answer is correct. The "m" in "mL" represesents the "milli" prefix, meaning "one thousandth".

Why did you suggest "both V = 1500mL and V = 15.00m"?
