According to the directions on a can of frozen orange juice concentrate, 1 can of concentrate is to be mixed with 3 cans of water to make orange juice. How many 12 ounce cans of the can concentrate are required to prepare 200, 6-ounce servings of orange juice?

ok .... so the total qty of juice is 1200 ounces... since the ratio of concentrate to water is 1:3 so concentrate = 300 and water = 900.... so total no. of 12 ounce cans required is 300/12= 25
