Jon used a total of 144 ounces of liquid while making soup of dinner. He used two types of liquid, heavy cream and chicken broth. He used 3 and a half times as much chicken broth as heavy cream. How many ounces of chicken broth is in the soup?
So the ratio of chicken broth to heavy cream is 3.5:1. 3.5+1= 4.5, 144/4.5 = 32. Each part has 32 ounces, 3.5*32 = 112. There are 112 ounces of chicken broth.
