## Algebra 1

Set up a ratio comparing the amount of raisins and peanuts in the recipe to the amount of raisins and peanuts needed for the fundraiser. Let x be the unknown amount of raisins. $\frac{3}{2}=\frac{x}{54}\longrightarrow$ cross multiply $2x=3\times54\longrightarrow$ multiply $2x=162\longrightarrow$ divide both side by 2 $2x\div2=162\div2\longrightarrow$ simplify $x=81$
