    2A = 3(2) = 4C

    therefore A & C are 2 as well?

    I only know B=6 and I can use 2(3) to make A but there is no way for C

    4C = 6 solve for C

    this is how I would do it: THe ratio for B is 3, but you need 6 pints. This required multiplying by 2. therefore you multiply the A and C portions by 2 as well. So A is 4 pints and C is ?

    Or 2:3:4 = ? :6: ? look at the pattern.

    I'm afraid Walleye has misled you a little. It is not true that 2A=3B=4C, though it is a common mistake.

    So A =4 and C=8
