1,500g

1,750g

2,000g

1,875g

Divide the required servings (15) by the original servings (4) to get the multiplying factor (3.75). Then multiply the original amount of flour (500g) by this factor to get 1,875g.

10.

If a cake recipe is for 6 people, but you need to feed 18 people, what factor should you multiply the ingredients by?
