1. Answer:4 1/2  Teaspoons  of vanilla will be left in the bottle

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1

Recipe for 1 cheesecake = 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla

Since she s making 5 cheesecakes, she will requite = 5 x 1 1/2 teaspoons

= 5 x 3/2= 15/2 = 7 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla.

Step 2

If a bottle of vanilla contains = 12 teaspoons of vanilla

After baking 5 cheesecakes which consumed = 7 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla

Teaspoons left of vanilla = Total teaspoons of vanilla-teaspoons of vanilla used for 5 cheesecakes= 12 – 7 1/2 =4 1/2

Therefore 4 1/2  Teaspoons  of vanilla will be left in the bottle
