Increase recipe yield

The recipe I have for creamed spinach calls for 2 10-oz. packages of frozen chopped spinach, to serve 4. How many packages should I use to serve 20? I am math-challanged and need help, please. Thanks...

Yes, 10.

To explain, 2 (10-oz.) packages serve 4.

20 servings divided by 4 servings equals 5.

Then, 5 times 2 equal 10.

I think you may have confused yourself with ounces and servings.

Or....

Each package serves 2 people

So for 20 people you need 10 packages
