    I'd say you need 1.33 times as much oatmeal.

    I think it is 17 bran and 13 oatmeal.

    Don't ask how I figured it out...4 bags difference somewhere..30 split in half needs 4 more...15-2, 15+2..comes to 17, 13

    I went to Rasmussen online for a semester..they gave questions like these, I hated them. They also messed up my Financial Aid and dropped my grades after Disability papers in English....nasty, nasty experience
