Ratio is 1:3 concentrate to water
200*6 ounce cans = 1200 ounces

1200/3 = 400 ounces of concentrate
400/12 = 33.3 cans 12oz

So 34 cans

1 concentrate : 3 parts water
x: 3x

200*6 = 1200

x + 3x = 1200
4x = 1200
x = 300 oz of concentrate ( what we are looking for)
3x = 900 oz of water

300 / 12 = 25 cans

Since 1 can is equal to 12 ounces we have 12x+36x=200*6

48x=1200

x=25.

Concentrate = 1/4
Juice = 3/4

Total = 200*6 = 1200 oz.

Concentrate required = 1/4 * 1200 = 300 oz.

1 can gives 12 oz so to get 300 oz. we need 300/12 = 25 cans

6 ounce x 200 =1200 ounce

12 ounce (concentrate) + 36 ounce (3 times of water) =48

1200/48 = 25

so you need 25 cans of concentrate
