    Write and solve an equation of ratios to answer this question:

    Pineapple   Orange

    Juice            Juice

       x                1 cup

    ———-    =     ————

     2/3 c              1/3 c

    Then (1/3 c)x = (2/3) c^2.

    Multiplying both sides by (3/1) will clear the fractions:

    x = (3/1)(2/3) c = 2 cups (answer)

    Frances will need 2 cups of OJ for each 1 cup of pineapple juice.
