    Answer:

    4 gallons

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Make a proportion

    Every 10 servings needs 2 cups of water, and 320 servings needs x cups of water

    10/2=320/x

    Cross multiply

    10*x=320*2

    10x=640

    Divide both sides by 10

    10x/10=640/10

    x=64

    The recipe needs 64 cups, but we need to find gallons.

    There are 16 cups in a gallon. Therefore, we can divide 64 cups by 16 to find out how many gallons it is.

    64/16

    4

    4 gallons of water would be needed for 320 servings
