Week 304 (7th July 2023)

Helen and her friend have planned to watch the Wimbledon tennis tournament on Saturday afternoon.  

Helen is making some scones for the occasion and her friend Sarah is bringing lots of strawberries!   

Helen’s ratio of ingredients for the scones is:   

Flour : butter : sugar  70 : 17 : 10 

Helen has 102g of butter. Helen uses all this butter to make the scones. Calculate the quantity of flour and sugar that Helen needs. 


To calculate the ratio of butter Helen has to make scones = 102g/17 = 6g 

 The amount of flour required = 6g x 70 = 420g  

 The amount of sugar required = 6g x 10 = 60g  

Therefore, Helen needs 420g flour and 60g sugar.
