### Nhea's Ratio Scribepost, 10/15/09

A recipe for trail mix calls for three cups of mini pretzels, two cups
of roasted soy chips, one cup of raisins, and one cup of sunflower
seeds. You make two batches of trail mix.

a) What is the ratio of mini pretzels to raisins? Express the ratio
two different ways?

One way I would express it could be like this 3 : 1 or 3 to 1

b) What is the ratio of roasted soy chips to sunflower seeds?

One way I would express it could be like this 2 : 1 or 2 to 1

c) How many cups of mix do two batches make?

Well since the mix calls for 3, 2, 1 and 1 cups of ingredience then add that together (7) and multiply that by 2 then the answer is that 14 cups of mix make two batches.

d) What is the ratio of soy chips and sunflower seeds to total trail
mix? Express the ratio as a fraction, a decimal, and a percent.

Ratio - 4 : 2
Fraction - 2/4
Decimal - 0.5
Percent - 50%.
