    Answer: She will get a different shade

    Step-by-step explanation:

    She will not get “Grape Purple” here is why:

    The ratio of red to blue cups can be expressed as a fraction of:

    2/3

    If we express Miya’s mix as a fraction we get:

    8:14

    If we simplify that it becomes:

    4/7

    4/7 is not equal to 2/3.
