## Sagot :

The final column is designed to be the answer to the initial question of how many people are fed by 15 pounds of ground turkey. Starting with column 2 (the reduced ratio of 1/3), multiply the top by 15 to get 15 pounds of ground turkey. Then do the same to the bottom of the fraction. 3 x 15 = 45 people fed.

So the table should have been

Pounds of turkey 2 1 15

People served 1 3 45

Melody's overriding error was in believing that adding or subtracting numbers to both the top and bottom of a ratio/fraction keep its value the same. Instead, only multiplying or dividing the top and bottom by the same number creates an equivalent fraction.
