coffee : cream : sugar = 8:2:1

New ratio:
coffee : cream : sugar = 16:4:1

So for 42-ounce thermos, cream needed = 42*(4/21) = 8 ounce

Ans: D.

Coffee to sugar 8:1 or 8/1

Double (8/1)(2) = 16/1

New Ratio:

16:4:1

The ratio of Coffee to Cream stayed the same at 16:4

16x + 4x + x = 21x

21x=42

x= 2

To find the amount of creamer 4(2) = 8 ounces

The ratio of cream to sugar stayed the same at 2:1 in both

16x + 2x + x = 21x

21x=42

x= 2

To find the amount of creamer 4(2) = 8 ounces



You mean,

!6x + 4x + x=21x

Yes, that's what I meant. I was using four, but writing a 2 for some reason. Thank You!
