1 can of concentration + 3 cans of water = orange juice
if each can is 12 ounces
then 1 can of 12 ounce concentration + 3 cans of 12 ounce water = orange juice so lets take the number of cans as x

Ratio of juice to water ===> 1:3 total 200*6 ounces 12 ounce juice cans ==> 1200/12 == 100*1/4 (ratio of jiuce to total) == 25

I think the confusion stems from lack of total servings. However, it is clear to see that if 1 can is mixed with 3 cans, we get 4 can serving of Orange juice.

One easy way to get this done.
Conc:Water = 1:3 So, Conc. = 1\4 of Juice
We need to know about 12ounces of conc. i.e. 12x. 12x = 1\4 of 100. (200 6-ounce servings = 100 12-ounce servings) 12x = 25. We need to find the value of 12x.

A. 25 B. 34 C. 50 D. 67 E. 100
\(\frac{concentrate}{juice}=\frac{1}{4}\), as 1 part of concentrate is to be mixed with 3 parts of water to get 4 parts of juice;
200 6-ounce of orange juice = 100 12-ounce of orange juice;
As 1/4 th 100 12-ounce of orange juice must be concentrate --> 100*1/4=25 12-ounce of cans of concentrate are required.
