Problem
Luka is making lemonade to sell at a school fundraiser. His recipe requires times as much water as sugar and twice as much sugar as lemon juice. He uses cups of lemon juice. How many cups of water does he need?
Solution 1 (Direct)
We have so Luka needs cups.

Solution 3 (Combination of Solutions 1 and 2)
The ratio is or Since we know that Luka used 3 cups of lemon juice, he needs cups of sugar. Because the amount of water is times the amount of sugar Luka needs, he will need cups of water.
Thanks to MRENTHUSIASM for the inspiration!
