Jam is made from 4 parts fruit to 3 parts sugar. How much sugar is needed to make jam from 1kg of fruit?

 

$$\\\frac{x \;sugar}{1000g fruit}=\frac{3sugar}{4fruit}\\\\
x \;sugar=\frac{3sugar}{4fruit}\times(1000g fruit)\\\\
$The fruit cancels out, so does the 4$\\\\
x \;sugar=\frac{3sugar}{1}\times(250g)\\\\
x \;sugar=750gsugar\\\\
x=750g$$

 

So Faisal is correct         750g   is   0.75Kg   of sugar is needed.
