On the standard cost card, each litre of soup needs 2.05 litres input (0.9 + 0.05 + 1.10)

The actual total input was 208900 litres, and so if it were mixed properly, the mixed vegetables would be 0.9 litres out of every 2.05 litres input. So it total they should have used 0.9 / 2.05 times 208900 = 91712.2
