1. Get the factor to increase the mass of each ingredient by can be determined by $200\div140=\frac{10}{7}$ 2. The mass of each ingredient required to serve 200 people is determined by multiplying the factor with the original individual mass of each ingredient. Mass of meat:$\frac{10}{7}\times25=35.714...\approx36$ Mass of potatoes:$\frac{10}{7}\times35=50$ Mass of carrots:$\frac{10}{7}\times15=21.428...\approx21$
