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

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.**
