Dog Food Alligation? Help Get Blue's Ratio of Kibbles to Bits Right

Dog Food Alligation? Help Get Blue's Ratio of Kibbles to Bits Right

Asha's dog, Blue, will only eat food that contains 3:1 Kibbles to bits. If the ARF brand contains 2:1 and the RUFF brand contains 4:1, how many grams of each will Asha need to make 900 g of Blue's favorite 3:1 combination? Tip: it is easiest to convert each ratio into a percentage before setting up your alligation grid.

- I have tried this and know how to do alligations very well, but do not come up with the answer in my book... perhaps the book is wrong? but I need to know if i'm doing it correctly before I assume this. Could you please solve this for me? Thank you, Cindy
