    Answer:

    13 apple muffins dozens

    Step-by-step explanation:

    I would write a proportion, I can’t use a fraction bar so they will just be on top of each other:

    Blueberry Muffins    6

    Apple Muffins          5

    For every 6 Blueberry muffins there are 5 apple muffins (dozens)

    So when he makes 16 blueberry muffins (dozens)

    You write it next to the ‘6’ because it’s talking about blueberry muffin dozens.

    The proportion now:


    Blueberry Muffins  6   16

    Apple Muffins        5    x

    To find x, or the number of apple muffin dozens, you multiply 16 * 5, which is

    80.

    Then divide by 6.

    80/6= 13.333

    You can’t have .333 of a dozen, so round it to 13.

    ***ANSWER***  

    He prepared 13 Apple muffin dozens.

    Hope this helped <3
