## Answers ( )

Answer:8 teaspoons of sugar

Step-by-step explanation:Make a proportion

You use 4 teaspoons of sugar for 5 teaspoons of creamer, and x teaspoons of sugar for 10 teaspoons of creamer

4/5=x/10

Cross multiply

5*x=4*10

5x=40

Divide both sides by 5 to isolate x

x=8

So, for 10 teaspoons of creamer, you will use

8 teaspoons of sugar
