So if Jane drinks one unit, Alex drinks one and a half units. Or, to turn Alex's share into whole units, if Jane drinks 2 units, Alex drinks three. So you have a total of 5 units  divide 150 by 5...? then turn the 3 portions / 2 portions into actual amounts...?

Um... Assuming that's actually a genuine question, these two friends are Alex and Jane? i.e. the two people who have just been named.

By the way... Reading the questions for the first time,I had the same question  who are these two other friends who finished the bottle.... As for the solution  diagram, as usual, is our friend. Draw Jane's glass as two squares, then Alex' glass will be 3 squares. Here is the ratio from the answer

If i do in algebra Jane = x Alex = x+x/2 = 3x/2 Total = 150ml 3x/2 +x =150 If i simplify my equation x=60 So alex one is 3x/2 = 90ml I hope this will help

I would definitely draw a diagram to work this sort of question out. KS2 children would not be expected to go straight to algebra and the diagram really helps understanding of the question.
