a. 1.5 kg of tuna, 1 kg of onion, 0.75 kg of red pepper and 2.4 kg of tomatoes

Step-by-step explanation:

Since each of these ingredients is needed and the recipe is for a single empanada, each ingredient in the recipe must be multiplied by 6 since they are 6 empanadas, like this:

1/4 kg tuna * 6 = 6/4 = 3/2 kg tuna

1/6 kg of onion * 6 = 6/6 = 1 kg of onion

1/8 kg of red pepper * 6 = 6/8 = 3/4 kg of red pepper

2/5 kg of tomatoes * 6 = 12/5 kg of tomatoes

Therefore 1.5 kg of tuna, 1 kg of onion, 0.75 kg of red pepper and 2.4 kg of tomatoes need it.

Now, with 2 kg of red pepper, what we should do is divide this quantity by the quantity for a recipe, like this:

2 / (1/8) = 16

that is to say that with 2 kg of red pepper, a total of 16 empanadas would be made
