therefore A & C are 2 as well?

if a= 2 and c =2 then 4 = 6 =8 ?????

Ok they aren't equal

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 ?

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
