Logan used 1/5 of an ounce of butter to make 1/6 of a pound of Jello. How many ounces of butter are needed to make 1 pound of Jello?
You need 6 1/6's of a pound to make a pound.
1/5 oz of butter = 1/6 lb of jello
To get to a pound of jello, you need to multiply 1/6 by 6 (1/6 x 6) to get to one.
But remember, what you do to one side of the equation, you also have to do to the other.
1/5 oz * 6 = 1/6 lb * 6
1/5 oz * 6 = 1 lb of Jello
6/5 ounces of butter = 1 lb of Jello
So you need 6/5 ounces of butter to make 1 pound of Jello!
