Hi blademaster,
Q1
The cake is made of 4+3+2=9 parts.
The sugar makes up 3 parts out of this 9, which is third of the cake mixture.
What then is the amount of sugar ?
Q2
The amount of yellow used is of the amount of red.
If all the red was used, of yellow would be needed.
Only 75ml of yellow is available, therefore calculate of this to find the amount of red for the correct mixture.
The amount of orange paint is the sum of the two.
Q3
She is 1.25h in height now if "h" is last year's height.
Hence the ratio is last year's height divided by this year's height.
As h is a factor of both, it cancels.
There is no need to know the exact height,
however, you may calculate this year's height by multiplying last year's height by 1.25 or
