Hint:

 

Since the ratio is 5:3, if we have 300ml lime juice and 200ml lemonade, we can easily create a 5:3 ratio with one of these as the base.

 

Hope this helped!

a) Since he has 500 ml total, we need to find the greatest possible amount where the ratio 5:3 will add up to 500 or less. 

 

5:3 times 62 will do that! 

 

62*5=310 parts of lime juice

62*3=186 parts of lemonade.

 

Does this make sense?

so how do you work out how much he made

I added 5+3 to get 8, and did 500/8=62.5. 

 

Since 62.5 rounds down to 62, I knew that 62 was the number that was going to be multiplied.

 

Hope this helped!

By the ratio, 5:3. (Each number)
