Muffins:

1/4 tsp salt
1/4 oats
1 cup milk
1/2 sugar
2 cups flour

makes 8 muffins

Maryse wants to make 20 muffins. what does she need to do to achieve that?

Solution

20 muffins = 8 + 8 + 4

(8 + 8 + 4 means that Maryse will need twice the original amount + half the original amount)

Another way to see it is that this amount is equal to 2.5 times the original amount the recipe is asking for.

20 / 8 = 2.5

Old amount

1/4 tsp salt
1/4 oats
1 cup milk
1/2 sugar
2 cups flour

Things to keep in mind.

Half of 1/4 is 1/8
Half of 1/2 is 1/4
Half of 1 is 1/2
Half of 2 is 1

New amount.

1/4 + 1/4 + 1/8 tsp salt

1/4 + 1/4 + 1/8 oats

1 + 1 + 1/2 milk

1/2 + 1/2 + 1/4 sugar

2 + 2 + 1 cups of flour
