A mixture of nuts has a ratio of 5 parts peanuts to 3 part cashews how many ounces of cashews do you need to make a 24 ounce mixture?
If there are 5 parts of peanuts and 3 parts of cashews, there are 8 parts all together. If the total mixture is to weigh 24 ounces, each of the 8 parts will weigh 3 ounces. 3 parts of cashews at 3 ounces each will be 9 ounces. 5 parts of peanuts at 3 ounces each will be 15 ounces. 9 ounces plus 15 ounces gives the correct total weight of 24 ounces
