PART TWO!

1) What would the recipe look like if it had served 10 people? Show your calculations.

-ground beef - 0.5 x 2.5 = 1.25 lb
-medium onion (diced) - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5
-stalk celery (finely diced) - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5
-clove garlic (minced) - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5
-canned tomatoes (chopped) - 14 x 2.5 = 35 oz
-canned tomato paste - 0.5 x 2.5 = 1.25
-parsley - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5 tsp
-basil - 1.5 x 2.5 = 3.75 tsp
-oregano - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5 tsp
-sugar - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5 tsp
-Worcestershire sauce - 0.5 x 2.5 = 1.25 tsp
-seasoning salt - 0.5 x 2.5 = 1.25 tsp
-bay leaf - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5

2) What would the recipe look like if you had to only serve 1 person? Show your calculations.

-ground beef - 1.25 /10 = 0.125 lb
-medium onion (diced) -
2.5/10 = 0.25
-stalk celery (finely diced) -
2.5/10 = 0.25
-clove garlic (minced) -
2.5/10 = 0.25
-canned tomatoes (chopped) -
35/10 = 3.5 oz
-canned tomato paste -
1.25/10 = 0.125
-parsley -
2.5/10 = 0.25 tsp
-basil -
3.75/10 = 0.375 tsp
-oregano -
2.5/10 = 0.25 tsp
-sugar -
2.5/10 = 0.25 tsp
-Worcestershire sauce - 1.25/10 = 0.125 tsp

-seasoning salt - 1.25/10 = 0.125 tsp
