Help w/ Math.....ratio and Hummingbird Nectar

vera_eastern_wa(5a-5b)April 15, 2007

I don't like making large amounts to store and looking to do one batch at a time for a single feeder.

I know 4:1 water to sugar would be like 4 cups water to 1 cup sugar. Sooo then would 2 cups water to 1/4 cup sugar be a 4 to 1 ratio?

Hi Vera -
Do 2 cups water to 1/2 cup sugar for half a batch or
do 1 cup water to 1/4 cup sugar for a quarter of a batch.
Happy hummers :)

I did finally figure it out....I did the 2 c. water to 1/2 c sugar. I've come down with the dreaded spring crud going around; my mind's been in a fog! Thanks for the confirmation :D
