Step-by-step explanation:
2 cups of pineapple juice for every 3 cups of orange juice.
Let’s suppose ❝x❞ is the number of pineapple cups needed for 16.5 cups of orange juice.
So we get this equality: [tex]\frac{2}{3} = \frac{x}{16.5}[/tex]
then x = [tex]\frac{2*(16.5)}{3}[/tex]
then x = [tex]\frac{33}{3} = 11[/tex]
