O.K. Thats enough. The ratio for the number of servings is 8 to 6 or 8/6 which further reduces to 4/3. Do you follow that? In other words the amount of butter will need to increase by that ratio.

To figure out what that is, take the amount of butter needed for 6 and multiply it by 4/3 to get the amount of butter for 8.

And remember it should be larger than 1/2.

8 is the number of servings that she is preparing for. For 6 she needed 1/2 cup, for 8 she needs more but less than 8 cups! Absolutely 2/3 cup of butter is good.
