Since we have the ratios:

1 egg : 2 spoonfuls of butter and

1 egg : 3 servings

So we combine the ratios and we have:

1 egg : 2 spoonfuls of butter : 3 servings

We multiply this by 2:

2 eggs : 4 spoonfuls of butter : 6 servings

4 spoonfuls of butter is needed for 6 servings.

1 egg : 2 spoonfuls of butter and

1 egg : 3 servings

So we combine the ratios and we have:

1 egg : 2 spoonfuls of butter : 3 servings

We multiply this by 2:

2 eggs : 4 spoonfuls of butter : 6 servings

4 spoonfuls of butter is needed for 6 servings.
