**drwls**, Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 11:14amA fraction 68.6/69.6 = 0.98563 of the taffy apples are the apples, and 1/69.6 = 0.014368 is the taffy mixture.

Multiply those fractions by 22,231 total lb made. Then round off to the nearest 0.1 lb.

**drwls**, Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 11:25amThose fractions should be 69.6/70.6 = 0.98584 apples and 1.0/70.6 = 0.014164 taffy. That makes 1 lb of taffy per 69.6 of apples

**drwls**, Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 11:37amNo way. How did you arrive at those numbers? Your total is a lot less than 22,231 lb.

If you had followed my instructions, you would have got 21,916.1 lb of apples. Now can you get the amount of taffy? You could subtract the apples from the total, or use the ratio I derived earlier.
