1. Let amounts be 2x , 2x, and x g

I will do the last one, the others are done the same way

d) 2x + 2x + x = 750
5x = 750
x = 150

so we need 300 g of oat cereal, 300g of pretzels and 150 g of nuts.

3. If cereal is 2/3, pretzels is 2/5, nuts are 1/5. Ok so you would add them up. 2/3 + 2/5 + 1/5 = well that is your answer. it will not be a answer if their is not a label.
