no

Do you know about ratio and proportions?

- tiff9702

Ratio yes the other no

- radar

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.

- tiff9702

i know

- radar

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.

- radar

And remember it should be larger than 1/2.

- tiff9702

I got 8

- radar

that would look like this 1/2 X 4/3 = ??

- radar

Thats larger for sure, bu that is too much butter.

- tiff9702

Answer:
= 2/3

- radar

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.
