Maria and Franco are mixing sports drinks for a track meet.
Maria uses cup of powdered mix for every 2 gallons of water. Franco uses
1 cups of powdered mix for every 5 gallons of water. Whose sports drink is
stronger? Explain how you found your answer


  1. Answer:Maria
    Step-by-step explanation: Maria uses a cup per 2 gallons while Franco uses a cup for 5 gallons. Maria has a 1:16 ratio while Franco has a ratio of 1: 80 because a gallon is 16 cups. It is clear now that Franco has a smaller ratio so, Maria’s sports drink is stronger.
