Sugar : Cinnamon
15 : 1

Sugar in 24kg mixture = \(\frac{15}{16}*24\) = 22.5

C is the answer.

Another way to answer to the question by looking the answer
Choice..
Given that Sugar : Cinnamon
15 : 1
So our answer must be less than and and near 23.
So our answer is 22.5

Solution:-

the ratio of the number of ounces of sugar to the number of ounces of the total is 15:16 or (after multiplying numerator and denominator by 1.5) is 22.5:24

Hence option C is the correct answer.

15:1 = 15/6 :1/16

1/16*24 = ¼*6= 1,5

24-1,5 =22,5
