is james using the correct proportions?
show working to justify answer.

  • math -

    Let x equal the amount of water needed.

    200/800 = 250/x

    200x = 200,000

    x = 1,000 ml

    sorry if its so long but could you please explain

  • math -

    I don't know what this means:

    "here is a list of ingredients you need to make 20 peanuts. "

  • math -

    the 100g butter
    50g sugar
    150g flour
    50g peanuts

  • math -

    since she bought 200g peanuts, that's 4 times as much as she needs for one batch of 20 cookies.

    So, multiply all the other amounts by 4 to use up all the nuts and make 80 cookies.

  • math -

    sorry how do you do the start of the question about the 10 cookies and the 50 cookies

  • math -

    Does the problem state the ingredients for 20 cookies or peanuts?

  • math -

    well the cookies are peanut cookies

  • math -

    a) Cut the ingredients in half to make 10 cookies.
    Multiply the ingredients for 10 cookies by 5 to make 50 cookies.

    b)
    200/4 = ?
