To make the shade you want, it takes 12 cups of yellow and 8 cups of red.

In other words, you used a total of 20 cups of paint to get the shade right.

To end up with 80 cups of paint, you just need to do the same thing 4 times.

So 4 times 12 cups of yellow is **48 cups of yellow**.

And, of course, 4 times 8 cups of red is 32 cups of red. 48 + 32 = 80 the amount you want.
