### Transcript

a little get together Ten people happily guzzled four bottles

of soda and they use this ratio to decide how

many bottles of soda x to purchase for a party

of thirty five people Well whether it's true or not

the theory is that the ratio of sodas purchased people

present is the same in each case So let's just

write it out is a word equation when you get

confused on these questions It's a really easy way to

at least get started You got number of soda bottles

is to the number of people right that's the ratio

while the values from the ten person get together belong

in one fraction and the values of the thirty five

person shindig going the other right So we have four

is two ten as Acts or something is toe 30

five Right So khun reduce it down a bit too

Is to five as x is the thirty five Well

think about it The equation to determine the amount of

soda needed for thirty five people is this Two Fifty

equals x over thirty five and well that's answer See 00:01:15.24 --> [endTime] and well we're done Bye
