simply divide 85,000 by 20,000 to find the amount if I'm not mistaken

ratio 1/20000 = x / 85000 times 85000 both sides 85000/20000 = x x = 4.25 4.25 pounds

Think about a simpler problem. How much honey would 40,000 trips produce? What about 60,000 trips? What about 100,000 trips? You see a pattern? How much honey would 20,000 * k trips produce, if k is some random number? So how much honey would 85,000 trips produce? If you could solve the previous problem, then you’ll see the solution to the problem you asked.
