Psh, I dont even get this a bit ...

but imma do what I usually do and go with my instinct ...

35 teaspoons of chocolate cocoa mix

45 teaspoons of french vanilla cocoa mix

(some excess way of finding it out aka my way : p)

35 x 1 = 35

35 x 2 = 70

35 x 3 = 105

35 x 4 = 140

35 x 5 = 175

35 x 6 = 210

35 x 7 = 245

35 x 8 = 280

35 x 9 = 315 <=

35 x 10 = 350

45 x 1 = 45

45 x 2 = 90

45 x 3 = 135

45 x 4 = 180

45 x 5 = 225

45 x 6 = 270

45 x 7 = 315 <=

45 x 8 = 360

45 x 9 = 405

45 x 10 = 450

As you can see, 315 is the first to go into them both!

35 x 9 = 315

45 x 7 = 315

therefore ...

you add 9 teaspoons of chocolate cocoa mix and 7 teaspoons of french vanilla cocoa mix to get the same amount of mix into each jar ...
