First of all, is this some kind of new language? It's bad enough to have to learn all the construction lingo, could we have the answers in plain English? If your question is: how many parts of cement and gravel you mix to 4 parts of sand, the answer is easy . . . 2 parts cement, 6 parts aggregate, 4 parts sand.
