You could benefit by learning the use of standard English (complete sentences, for example) in stating a problem.

Ibelieve that you are attempting to represent the components of a fruit juice mix having these proportions:

x units of apple juice

4x units of orange juice

2x units of pineapple juice.

The total is 7x, and the units are ounces (oz).

7x = 28 so x = 4; answers are

**4 oz of apple juice**

**16 oz of orange juice**

**8 oz of pineapple juice.**

Suggested improvements on problem statement: there is 4 times as much o.j. as apple juice;

there is half as much pineapple juice as orange juice. [as, not THAN]
