4 Cans of juice is made from 1 Can of concentrate.

So 200 -6 Oz = 100 -12 Oz cans of juice will require x -12 Oz concentrate

So 4/1 = 100/x => x = 25 ---> (A).

200, 6 ounce servings = 1200 ounces

1200 ounces divided by 12 ounce cans = 100 servings

Now,

Xcans + 3Xwater = 100 servings

4X = 100
X = 25

Bingo. A.

6 ounce serving of juice => 1.5 ounces Orange concentrate
200 6 ounce servings of juice => 200 x 1.5 ounces Orange concentrate = (200 x 1.5)/12 nbr. of 12 ounce orange conc. = 25.
