Ainsley is trying to eat more vitamins and minerals. She checks the nutrition labels on two different brands of soup. Brand A has 40 percent of the daily value of iron in a 2-cup serving. Brand B has 30 percent of the daily value of iron in a 1-cup serving. Ainsley plans to eat 3 cups of soup. Which brand will give her more iron?

1) Brand A has more iron in 3 cups of soup.
2) Brand A and B offer the same amount of iron.
3) It is not possible to tell which brand has more iron from the information given.
4) Brand B has more iron in 3 cups of soup.

The answer is not 4 although she would be getting more iron from that, so I am thinking it's 3?

  2. B has 40% in 2 cups, so 60% in 3 cups
    B has 30% in one cup, so 90% in 3 cups

    why do you say the answer is not #4, since she gets more iron there?
