Conversion formula

1 Gallon = 4 Quarts

= 16 Cups

=> 1 Quarts   = 4 Cups

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mrs. White has recipe for 3 quarts (12 cups)

1 1/5 cups of pineapple juice

(6/5 cups)

1/2 cup of orange juice

and Rest (12 - 6/5 - 1/2 = 103/10 cups)

of lemon lime soda

these are the recipes for 3 Quarts

(12 cups) of Punch

------------------------------------------------------------------------

We want the recipe for 6 gallons

of punch

=> 6 gallons = 6 * 16 = 96 cups

but 96 = 12 * 8

each recipe for 12 cups gets

multiplied by 8

required recipe for 6 gallons of

punch is

6/5 * 8 = 48/5 = 9 3/5 cups of pineapple juice

1/2 * 8 = 4 cups of orange juice

f     13/10 * 8 = 412/5 = 82 2/5 cups of lemon-lime soda
