It takes 1 1/2 cups of flour,  1 1/4 cups of sugar, and 1/2 cup of butter to bake fifteen shortbread cookies. If Ramon has 12 cups of flour, 14 cups of sugar, and 5 cups of butter, how many shortbread cookies can he bake?

First, check to see if the ratios are correct

12 / (1.5) = 8

14/ (1.25) =11

5/1/2 = 10   

 

The most Ramon can make is 8 batches of cookies.....with butter and sugar left over 

8 batches   * 15 cookies / batch  = 120 cookies
