Hemal wanted to make dessert for her family. The recipe made 8 servings, but she only wanted to make enough for 5 people. If the recipe for 8 servings called for 2 cups of flour, how much flour would she need for 5 servings?
First I would divide the 2 cups by 8. Showing you how many cups you need per serving. 2÷8=.25 Then multiply .25 by 5, because thats how many servings you need. 5×.25=1.25 So you need 1.25 cups of flour to serve 5 people
