    Answer:The total portions of salad she makes is 30.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Nicole takes 2/5 of a pound of tuna to make 5 portions of salad. She uses 1 1/5 pound of canned tuna for every two onions used.

    Now, to find the total portions of salad she make.

    For 2 onions she used = 1 1/5 pound of tuna that is 6/5 pound.

    So, for 1 onion = 6/5 ÷ 2 = 3/5.

    And for 4 onions = 3/5 × 4 = 12/5 pound of tuna.

    Now, she takes 2/5 pound of tuna for 5 portions.

    So, 1 pound of tuna = 5 ÷ 2/5 = 25/2 portions.

    So, according to question:

    Total portions of salad = total pound of tuna × total portions.

                                         =

                                         =

                                         =

  1. Answer:

    The total portions of salad she makes is 30.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Nicole takes 2/5 of a pound of tuna to make 5 portions of salad. She uses 1 1/5 pound of canned tuna for every two onions used.

    Now, to find the total portions of salad she make.

    For 2 onions she used = 1 1/5 pound of tuna that is 6/5 pound.

    So, for 1 onion = 6/5 ÷ 2 = 3/5.

    And for 4 onions = 3/5 × 4 = 12/5 pound of tuna.

    Now, she takes 2/5 pound of tuna for 5 portions.

    So, 1 pound of tuna = 5 ÷ 2/5 = 25/2 portions.

    So, according to question:

    Total portions of salad = total pound of tuna × total portions.

                                          = \frac{12}{5}\times \frac{25}{2}

                                          = \frac{300}{10}\ portions

                                          = 30\ portions

    Therefore, total portions of salad she make is 30.
