Which ingredient is the limiting reactant if you have 5 cups of flour, 9 eggs and 3 tbs of oil?
2 cups flour + 3 eggs + 1 tbs oil - 4 waffles
This looks like a limiting reagent problem. A double batch would require 4, 6, and 2, and a triple batch would require 6, 9, and 3. However, you only have 5 cups of flour, so you're limited in that reagent (ingredient). Answer: 5 cups of flour is the limited reagent
