Accepted Solution

A:
Good evening ,  Answer: We need 11 cups of pineapple. ___________________ 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]   :)
