# A popular sports drink can be made by adding 22 grams of powdered drink mix to 12 ounces of water. However, you can make as much or as little of the sports drink as you'd like by varying the amount of drink mix and water so that they remain proportional. If you'd like to make some sports drink with 34 ounces of water, how much drink mix should you use?

Step-by-step explanation:

A popular sports drink can be made by adding 22 grams of powdered drink mix to 12 ounces of water. This means that for every for every 22 grams of powdered drink mix to 12 ounces of water.

Since this amount of drink mix and water can vary so that they remain proportional, let us determine the unit rate

If 12 ounces of water require 22 grams of powdered milk,

1 ounce of water will require 22/12 = 11/6 ounce of powdered milk,

Since 1 ounce of water would be mixed with 11/6 grams of powdered milk,

34 ounces of water will be mixed with

11/6 * 34 = 62.3 grams of powdered milk
