Question

Here are two paint mixtures: • 3 cups of white and 4 cups of blue. • 6 cups of white and 8 cups of blue. Both mixtures make the same color because they are in equivalent ratios. Which of these mixtures is also in an equivalent ratio? 5 cups white 6 blue 1 white 1 1/2 blue 4 white 3 blue 1.5 white 2 blue

The mixture that is an equivalent ratio is:

1.5 white 2 blue

Step-by-step explanation:

a) Data and Calculations:

Mixtures of the same color because they are in equivalent ratios:

3 cups of white and 4 cups of blue: equivalent ratio = 0.75: 1 (75%) since 3/4 = 75%

6 cups of white and 8 cups of blue. equivalent ratio = 0.75: 1 (75%) since 6/8 = 75%

Other mixtures:

5 cups white 6 blue: equivalent ratio = 0.83: 1 (83%) since 5/6 = 83%

1 white 1 1/2 blue: equivalent ratio = 0.67: 1 (67%) since 1/1.5 = 67%

4 white 3 blue: equivalent ratio = 1: 75 (1.33%) since 4/3 = 1.33%

1.5 white 2 blue: equivalent ratio = 0.75: 1 (75%) since 1.5/2 = 75%

Therefore, the mixture with equivalent ratio as the initial mixtures is 1.5 while 2 blue.
