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?

Can you work this one out yourself now?
3. Yeah I thought second one was 25 divided by 20 x 10=12.5 but I wasn't sure lol
