  1. The weight of sand in the mixture when the weight of the clay in the mixture is 6.25 pounds is 4.69 pounds.
    The equation can be represented as follows:
    3c = 4s

    How to find the variable in an equation?

    3c = 4s
    where
    • c = weight of the clay in the mixture
    • s = weight of sand in the mixture
    Hence,
    3c = 4s
    4s = 3c
    let’s make s the subject of the formula, since, we want to find s when c = 6.25 pounds
    s = 3 / 4 c
    s = 3 / 4 × 6.25
    s = 18.75 / 4
    s = 4.6875
    s = 4.69 pounds
