Question

Here is a list of ingredients for making cherry scones: Makes 8 cherry scones 200 grams flour 60 grams margarine 40 grams sugar 60 grams cherries 160 ml milk Sophie has 80 grams of sugar and 300 grams of flour. She has plenty of the other ingredients. What is the greatest number of cherry scones she can make?

## Answers ( No )

She has 80g of sugar, which is 2 times the amount necessary to make 8 scones. She has 300g of flour, which is 1.5 times the amount necessary to make 8 scones. We must go by what is smallest, in this case the flour. She can make 1.5(8) = 12 scones.
