it takes 1/2 of a cup of flour to make a batch of pancakes.  Curtis has 4 cups of flour.  How many batches of pancakes can he make?

Let x = the number of batches of pancakes that can be made with 4 cups of flour

Set up proportion

1/2 cups / 1 batch = 4 cups / x batches

cross multiply to get

1/2x = 4

x = 4 / 1/2 = 8 batches of pancakes
