Monica uses 3 tablespoons of milk in her custard recipe. The ratio of tablespoons to fluid ounces is 2 : 1. How many fluid ounces of milk does Monica use? A.) 0.5 fluid ounces B.) 1 fluid ounce C.) 1.5 fluid ounces D.) 3 fluid ounces
2 tablespoons is 1 fluid ounce. Which means 1 tablespoon is .5 fluid ounce which makes C.) the correct answer. 3-2 = 1 tablespoon. The 2 tablespoons taken away were turned into one fluid ounce. The last tablespoon is only half of what would make 1 fluid ounce and since .5 is the same as 50% that means that 1.5 fluid ounces is the same as 3 tablespoons.
The correct answer is C.
