    Well, you need \frac{2}{9} \times 80 litres of fruit mix and \frac{7}{9} \times 210 litres of lemonade.

    I don't think this is right.

    You can make 270 litres of drink if you use 210 litres of lemonade and 60 litres of fruit mix.

    210 : 60 = 7 : 2

    That's fine then. I thought that they didn't really explain why but if they did then that suits me and you.
