so if we have a glass of ornage juice it has 1 part concentrate and 3 parts water. or ratio of concentrate to juice is 1:4.

now 200 6 ounce servings is same as 100 12 ounce servings.

so 1:4 = x : 100

or x = 25

Someone else just posted this one.

Ok so there are 200 6 ounce servings. thus a total of 6*200 or 1200oz.

Now the ratio of Conc. Orange Juice to water is 1/3. realize that there is an unknown multiplier and we can say that x+3x=1200. or 4x=1200. Thus x=300ounces. So to figure out how many 12oz cans we need we simply divide 300 by 12. 300oz/12oz can = 25cans.

Ans A.
