Ryan and Jai will squeeze lemons to get the juice needed to mix with the simple syrup to make the lemonade. Most lemons can be squeezed to produce two tablespoons of lemon juice. Sixteen tablespoons of juice are needed to fill one cup.
-Twenty-four lemons are used to make one batch of lemonade. How many pints? of lemon juice are in one batch of the lemonade? Show each step of your solution
Solve this too: Jai buys three pounds of lemons from Citrus Club, and Ryan buys three pounds of lemons from Fruit Mart.
-How much more money did Ryan spend to buy pounds of lemons at Fruit Mart compared to the amount of money Jai spent at Citrus Club? Show each step of your solution and explain your reasoning. This is connected to the main question
1 lemon = 2 tablespoon lemon juice
16 tablespoons = 1 cup
1 pint = 2 cups
24 * 2 = 48
1 batch = 48 tablespoons
Remember, 16 tablespoons = 1 cup.
Divide 48 by 16, which equals 3.
So 1 batch = 3 cups. We also know that 1 pint = 2 cups, so
It has to be 1.5 because 1.5 * 2 = 3.
1.5 pints of lemon juice = 1 batch of lemonade.
Hope this helps
