Textbook Problem

In Exercises 17 to 22, use proportions to solve each problem.A recipe calls for 4 eggs and 3 cups of milk. To prepare for a larger number of guests, a cook uses 14 eggs. How many cups of milk are needed?

To determine

To find:

The number of cups of milk required for the recipe that uses 14 eggs.

Explanation

According to Means-Extremes Property, in a proportion, the product of the means equals the product of the extremes.

Calculation:

Let us suppose x number of cups are required.

It is given that a recipe calls for 4 eggs and 3 cups of milk.

By form,

NumberofeggsforlessnumberofguestsNumberofcupsofmilk=Numberofeggsforlargernumber
