In a box of mixed nuts, the ratio of cashews to almonds is 1 to 3. How many cashews are in the box if there are 12 almonds? Please not only the answer but please also explain why its the answer thanks
1 cashew : 3 almonds : : x cashew : 12 almonds
1 / 3 = x / 12
Now multiply by 12 on both sides, we get
12 * 1 / 3 = x
12 / 3 = x
4 = x
x = 4
Hence if there are 12 almonds, then there will be 4 cashews.
