A certain food must be mixed at a ratio of 1:50 (1 part dry to 50 parts wet). A cooker needs a total of 2 and 1/2 gallons of solution. how many ounces of each should be added?

Never mind

The way to work these is consider the total to be broken into 51 parts.

divide the ounces in 2.5 gal by 51.

Then, that number is the dry, the remainder is wet.
