b) Robert has

500g of sugar
1000g of butter
1000g of flour
500ml of milk

Work out the greatest number of shortcakes robert can make.

thank you
2. If Liz uses 25ml of milk, she makes the number of shortcakes that require 25ml of milk

If Robert can only use 1000g of flour and 1000g of butter, he makes the number of shortcakes that require such

Clearly we're not supposed to give you the answer, even if the question seems silly and/or the answer seems obvious
