Josie makes fruit punch by mixing juice and lemonade in the ratio 2:5. She needs to make 42 liters of punch for the party. How much ingredients does she need. (I can do this bit) 12 liters of juice to 30 liters of lemonade.

To make the second batch of punch go further Josie adds 2 more liters of lemonade. What is the new ratio? I know that answer is 8:22 but I have no idea of how they got this answer.

Please help
