You just multiply 2/3 by 3 since it’s 1 full cup of orange juice he’s using. 1/3 x 3 = 1. And 2/3 x 3 = 2.
and surely, you know how much that is
of pinapple juice
2 cups (6/3)
If 2/3y = 1/3x
Then ?y = 1x
Since we multiplied x by 3, we have to multiply y by 3 too so we can remain equality.
So, the answer should be 2 cups (6/3)
1/3 cup OJ => 2/3 cup pineapple juice
3/3cup OJ=> 6/3 cup of pineapple juice
= 2 cups of pineapple juice
2 cups of pineapple juice does Francine use for 1 cup of orange juice
Unit rate defined as the rates are expressed as a quantity as 1 such as 3 meter per seconds or 5 miles per hour.
As per the statement:
Francine uses 2/3 cup of pineapple juice for every 1/3 cup of orange juice to make a smoothie
then by definition of unit rate:
cups of pineapple juice
Therefore, 2 cups of pineapple juice does Francine use for 1 cup of orange juice
2/3 cup of pineapple juice for 1/3 cup of orange juice to make 1 smoothie
Let the no. Of smoothies be x
x/3 = 111
x = 333 smoothies
Cups of pineapple juice = 222
Hope this helps!
For every 1/3 cup of orange juice, she uses 2/3 cups
You are solving for 1 cup. To solve, multiply 3/1 to both fractions.
(1/3)(3/1) = 3/3 = 1
(2/3)(3/1) = 6/3 = 2
For every 1 cup of orange juice, 2 cups of pineapple juice is used.
