    |dw:1435113048862:dw| From the recipe, 3/4 cups of honey corresponds to 2 eggs. And you are looking on how much honey do you need when you use 3 eggs. |dw:1435113136674:dw|

    To solve for the x amt. of honey when using 3 eggs, you have to multiply both sides of the equation by 3 and then simplify.

    just little correction from what I wrote above: |dw:1435113435903:dw| the proportion is: |dw:1435113464743:dw| almost right, but where did you get 8 in the denominator ?

    oh I missed 3/4 ! SORRY my bad, so I think you'll be right, it should be 9/8 cups of honey |dw:1435113853024:dw|

    haha ok, so we just cross multiplied then? 3/4 times 3 and x times 3 is 2x = 9/4 and then 9/4 divded by 2 is 9/8 right?
