How Much of Each Ingredient?

Determine how many times Denzel needs to fill his 14-cup measuring cup to get the right amount of each of the first five ingredients.

  • Rewrite the recipe so that it shows how many 14-cups are needed of each of the ingredients.
    • 1 cup chopped almonds = [   ] 14-cups
    • 112 cups dried apricots = [   ] 14-cups
    • 114 cups water = [   ] 14-cups
    • 12 cup honey = [   ] 14-cups
    • 212 cups flour = [   ] 14-cups
  • Discuss your answers with your partner.

Try making a diagram to represent the amount of each ingredient. How many 1/4 -cups does your diagram represent?
