lets work on the 6 once serving

x+3y = OG ie ratio of orange : water is 1:3

the 6 ounce is 1.5 orange and 4.5 water

200*6 = 1200 ie: 300 orange and 900 water

300/12 = 25 ...............

Solution?

12 ounce cans of the concentrate=48 ounce of OJ
we need 1200 ounce of OJ
so 1200/48=25 ->12 ounce cans of the concentrate
