    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
