Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you have to split the only into 10 parts too, and see how much is in each part, this is known as divisiion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do I add or times The White Sugar and Brown Sugar then X's it by 3?

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We can think about it logically. If the directions asked for 12 servings, that means we would double each part of the recipe. or multiply by 2. But the directions say to get 9 servings, that is not exactly double. Instead it is the factor 9/6 multiply each component of the recipe by 9/6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So WS x 9/6 and BS x 9/6 Correct?

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We only need to find the additional amount of flour needed for 9 servings. Therefore multiply 9/6 by the flour amount for 6 servings. I may have misread the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so WS =3/4 BS= (1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let's post all the given info again A recipe calls for cups 4/3 of flour, ￼1/2 cup of white sugar, and 2/3 ￼ cup of brown sugar. The recipe makes 6 servings. Question Part c) (c) Suppose you modify the recipe so that it makes 9 servings. How much more flour do you need for the modified recipe than you need for the original recipe? The question is only asking about the additional flour needed to make 9 servings, not the sugar.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, How do we get 9 servings :P I might be wrong

perl
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we can multiply 9/6 by the old flour amount to get the new amount of flour needed for 9 servings

perl
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you know what, let's use a proportion since that made sense earlier

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2$$ \Large \frac{4/3 \rm~ cup ~flour}{6 ~\rm servings} = \frac{x \rm ~ cup ~flour}{9 ~ \rm servings} $$
