    ok, wait i confused myself there, it is 4. ok, im so sorry, idk why i made it so much more confusing than what it is. the ratio needs to be, for every 1 cup of cherry juice there are 4 cups of soda. so 4 would do that

    i kept thinking that i need to divide the fraction by the ratio, but the ratio itself is a simplified form of the fractions, so you dont do that
