A recipe for fruit punch calls for 2 1/2 c of orange juice, 1 1/3 c of pineapple juice, and 1 3/4 c of soda water. If June makes 4 times the recipe, how many cups of fruit punch will she have?

If c stands for cups then if June makes the recipe as it stands she will use
2 1/2 + 1 1/3 + 1 3/4 cups of liquid
(67 /12)
But she makes 4 times that amount so she makes 67/3 cups. In whole number of cups that's 22 cups.
