Question

You have 20cookies with the ratio is 2 chocolate chip for every 3 sugar. How many sugar cookies do you have?

1 Answer

  • 2 chocolate chip: 3 sugar      So, this is the ratio.

    The sum of this is 5 but we need it to be 20, because there are 20 cookies.

    Let's try multiplying 4 to each side:

    4 * 2 chocolate chip : 4 * 3 sugar

    8 chocolate chip: 12 sugar

    8 + 12 = 20

    So, you have 12 sugar cookies.

    Final Answer: 12 sugar cookies
