A nontoxic scouring powder is made up of 4 parts baking soda and 1 part vinegar. How much of each ingredient is needed for a 16-oz mixture?

What are the two equations? For most problems, I can easily find the info for the two equations, but this time, I just don't see the info for equations?
Thanks!

• Algebra -

4/5 baking soda and 1/5 vinegar
4/5*16 =
1/5*16 =

• Algebra -

or
b + v = 16
b = 4 v
same result

• Quick question -

So that means the amount of baking soda is the same as 4 vinegar?
