Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I only know B=6 and I can use 2(3) to make A but there is no way for C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this 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 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm afraid Walleye has misled you a little. It is not true that 2A=3B=4C, though it is a common mistake.
