# A punch recipe says to mix 4 cups pineapple juice, 8 cups orange juice, and 12 cups seltzer in order to make 18 servings of punch.

A) How many cups of each pineapple juice do you need to make 108 cups of punch?

I would appreciate it if you can show me how to do this problem

2. 4+8+12 = 24 cups

108/24 = 4.5
so multiply each number of cups by 6 to get 108 cups

Note, a serving is evidently not a cup because 24 cups is 18 servings. I do not know if this is an intentional confusion or a typo.

4. 4 * 4.5 = 18 pineapple
8 * 4.5 = 36 orange
12 * 4.5 = 54 seltzer

5. For every cup of seltzer you use, how
much orange juice do you use?

6. Divide 108 and 24.
(4+8+12=24)

4.5x4=18
4.5x8=36
4.5x12=54

18 cups of pineapple+36 cups of orange+54 cups of seltzer.
