Hey guys good evening! I consider intelligent in certain areas of math however I honestly truly don't know how to figure this "math problem" out in my head!
I am making spaghetti meatballs and recipe calls to boil 1.5lb. pasta in 4 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon salt! I only want to cook up .5 lb. pasta! In my head I am thinking it doesn't matter the amount of pasta you use because the salt to water ratio isn't changing, is this true? Do I need to change any quantities?
Can someone kindly explain this for me? Thank you very much see ya
