To solve this problem, we can set up a proportion.
0.75 X
x
6 1
To solve this proportion, you can use cross products.
The resulting equation is 0.75*1=6x
When the left side is simplified, you get 0.75 = 6x.
You are trying to get x alone, so you need to divide both sides by 6.
0.75/6 = 1/8.
So, Mr. Gehring uses 1/8 flour for each cake.
