Ms Rojas used 6 drops of blue tint to create 24 ounces of a special paint color. She loved the color so much that she created a larger amount containing 288 ounces so she could sell it at the farmers market. How many drops of blue tint did she need for the larger amount?


  1. We’re given : 6 drops of blue tint create 24 ounces of the color,

    Therefore, every drop of blue tint is equivalent to 24 : 6 = 4 ounces.

    Since she created 288 ounces, the number of drops she used was : 288 : 4 = 72 (drops)
