Answer:

you must add #6# litres of cranberry juice

Explanation:

"A fruit punch recipe calls for 3 parts of apple juice to 4 parts of cranberry juice"

Meaning: For every 3 litres of apple juice, you must add 4 litres of cranberry juice. That means if you add 6 litres of apple juice, then you must add 8 litres of cranberry juice

Now, if you add 4.5 litres of apple juice, you can think of it this way

#3" apple juice" : 4" cranberry juice"#
#4.5" apple juice": x" cranberry juice"#

#x=(4.5times4)/3#
#x=18/3#
#x=6#

Therefore, you must add #6# litres of cranberry juice
