Name:______________________
The recipe below serves 4 people. Calculate the quantities for 2, 8, and 6 people and write them in the columns on the right for each ingredient.
Quantity | For 2 | For 8 | For 14 | |
4 | Chicken breasts | 2 | 8 | 14 |
2 | Tablespoons of olive oil | 1 | 4 | 7 |
^{1}⁄_{2} | Teaspoon of black pepper | ^{1}⁄_{4} | 1 | 1 ^{3}⁄_{4} |
^{1}⁄_{4} | Pound of prosciutto | ^{1}⁄_{8} | ^{1}⁄_{2} | ^{7}⁄_{8} |
3 | Small zucchinis | 1 ^{1}⁄_{2} | 6 | 10 ^{1}⁄_{2} |
1 | Clove of garlic | ^{1}⁄_{2} | 2 | 3 ^{1}⁄_{2} |

Hint: Notice that the relationship between the different quantity does not change. e.g. no matter how many people are to be served, the number of chicken breasts is also twice the number tablespoons of olive oil and there are always three times more zucchinis than cloves of garlic.
You can use this to simplify your calculations e.g. if you calculate the quantity of tablespoons of olive oil, you will be able to find the number of chicken breasts by doubling that number.
