A batch of cookies requires 2 1/4 cup of flour and 1 egg. You have in your kitchen 8 cups of flour and a half dozen eggs.
a) How many batches of cookies can you make?
b) After you have made the cookies, how much flour and how many eggs will you have left? What portion of the original amount of flour and the original number of eggs will you have left?

Look at ech ingredient to find the limiting factor

 

8 c flour / 2.25 c flour/batch = 3.6 batches

 

6 eggs / 1 egg/batch =  6 batches

 

The most you can make is 3  (integer) batches of cookies due to a lack of flour

      so yo will have 3 eggs left.....can you compute the leftover flour?

2*3+3/4=6 3/4 cups

 

flour left = (8-6 3/4) cups = 1 1/4 cups of flour

 

ratio of left flour to original flour

1 1/4/8 = 5/32

 

ratio of left eggs to original number of eggs

3/6 = 1/2

 

i think this is the answer but you can check my answer
