**Jessica**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 8:55pmThanks! But how did you get that..?

**Knights**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 8:59pmdarjeeling tea to the ratio of the entire blend is 5 (in the ratio it is given) / 9 (sum of both teas) = 5/9

so, 5/9 * 90 ounces = 50 ounces

thus the answer is 50 ounces. sorry for being unclear

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:01pmHe might have gotten it by using a proportion.

5/9 = x/90

9x = 450

x = 50

**Jessica**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:03pmYou're fine. I also need help on a couple others.

A survey of 500 people found that 1 lout of 20 had at least one bird as a pet. How many people who were surveyed owned at least one bird?

**Jessica**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:03pm1* out of* 20

**Knights**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:10pmso just like Ms. Sue said, you can you use a proportion. 1/20 would be the people owning at least one bird. So, 1/20 * 500 = 25. We get 25 people who were surveyed and owned at least one bird. Next time just post another question I guess :D

**Jessica**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:14pmWas this a smart remark? "Next time just post another question I guess :D" If so, I'm not really in the mood.. but if you meant it I do have another question........

**Knights**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:15pmUh...I meant like post another entire question, not like a whole chain of them.

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:17pmI think he meant to click

**Post a New Question**. That way everyone is alerted that it is a new question, not just a continuation of a previous question.

**Knights**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:18pmI agree with Ms. Sue.

**Jessica**, Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9:22pmK. I'm sorry I didn't understand what way you were saying it. Good greef.
