Contents of Breakfast 2 eggs + 4 bacon strips + 300mL Juice 1breakfast You have: – 1200 eggs – 1800 strips of bacon – 120L juice How many campers can you feed?

Contents of Breakfast 2 eggs + 4 bacon strips + 300mL Juice 1breakfast (Step 1) You have: (Step 2:Given) – 1200 eggs – 1800 strips of bacon – 120L juice=120,000mL How many campers can have two eggs? (Step 2: Goal) Step 3: Know/Acquire – Relative ratios: 2:4:300:1 – 2 eggs = 1breakfast Step 4: Unit Analysis

Compare what you have to what you need: 2 eggs + 4 bacon strips + 300mL Juice 1breakfast 1200 eggs feeds 600 campers 1800 bacon strips feeds 450 campers 120L juice feeds 400 campers Only 400 campers can have a complete breakfast.

Limiting Reagent The ingredient we have the least of is the orange juice, so it is called the limiting reagent, i.e., once it runs out you are limited in your ability to make complete breakfasts.
