According to the directions on a can of frozen orange juice concentrate, 1 can of concentrate is to be mixed with 3 cans of water to make orange juice. How many 12-ounce cans of the concentrate are required to prepare 200 6-ounce servings of orange juice?
A) 25
B) 34
C) 50
D) 67
E) 100
I got really confused with this problem because the question didn't state whether or not that each can of water had the same weight as the can of concentrate.

The trick is into the question - How many 12-ounce cans of the concentrate are required to prepare 200 6-ounce servings of orange juice?

What it is telling you indirectly is the size of each can of concentrated juice or water is 12 oz.

200 6oz orange juice
= 200 * 6
= 1200oz ----> equivalent to 100 cans of 12oz (1200/12)

Thus, ratio of concentrate to total cans = 1 / (1+3) ---> 1/4
No. of concentrate cans = 1/4 * 100 = 25 cans

Ans: A

yea, that was tricky. we are forced to make that assumption that the capacity of the cans of concentrate are equiv to the capacity of the cans of water.

x + 3x = orange juice
x + 3x = 4x
