## krissy7606 2 years ago A certain drug is made from only two ingredients: compound A and compound B. There are 3 milliliters of compound A used for every 2 milliliters of compound B. If a chemist wants to make 490 milliliters of the drug, how many milliliters of compound A are needed?

for every 5 ml you get 3 ml of A and 2 of B divide 490 by 5, what do you get?
