    Hmm, well it's certainly not A, right? :) We're going from 8 to 10 people.. the recipe shouldn't jump from just under 1 cup to over 4 cups!!

    How do you usually solve these types of problems? Set up a proportion I guess? :o

    The ratio of `3/5 of a cup` per `8 people` should stay preserved. \[\large\rm \frac{3/5}{8}=\frac{x}{10}\]So 3/5 per 8 people is equivalent to some amount per 10 people. We could cross multiply I guess. Or simply multiply by 10. Is this method too confusing?

    If I multiply both sides by 10,\[\large\rm 10\cdot\frac{3/5}{8}=\frac{x}{\cancel{10}}\cdot\cancel{10}\]Another way we can write this,\[\large\rm \frac{10}{8}\cdot\frac{3}{5}=x\]I applied some tricky fraction rules D: Lemme know if that was too confusing. So the amount you want is the simplified version of that.

    \[\large\rm \frac{10}{8}\cdot\frac{3}{5}=x\]\[\large\rm \frac{10\cdot3}{8\cdot5}=x\]\[\large\rm \frac{30}{40}=x\]And simplify further :O
