Homework Help: Math

Posted by Kiki on Monday, November 17, 2008 at 7:07pm.

Here is the question:


"To make a pancake mix, add 1/2 cup of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 1 cup of powdered milk, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Assuming the volume of the baking powder and salt are negligible, how much flour will be needed to make 50 cups of the dry mix?"

We are doing proportions, which is:

a c
__ = __
b d

***The units of A&C have to be the same and B&D also.

I got this far in the problem while doing it::::

x (cups of flour) ???
________________ = _________
50 cups of flour 3 cups of flour


for the top ?? do I put all the dry ingredients listed? Because I don't think I do, because if I did so, then the outcome would be too large, wouldn't it?
