    Paint must be diluted with water in ratio of 4:1 how much water would you need add to 480ml paint?

    Shazad needs 10 litres of lemon squash to fill 20 cups. How much squash does he need to fill 25 cups?

    So if you have 4 ml of paint, you need 1 (4/4) ml of water.

    If you have 8 ml of paint, you need 2 (8/4) ml of water.

    If you have 12 ml of paint, you need 3 (12/4) ml of water?

    Can you see the pattern? What does that mean about 480 ml of water?
