In order to make a perfect cake you need exactly 72 sprinkles for every 6 ounces of cake(this is a proven fact). If I were to make a cake that was 4 ounces and 52 sprinkles, would my take have too many, too few, or just the right amount of sprinkles?

Too many. The ratio of 72:6 reduces to 12:1. If we have a 4 ounce cake, we multiply our ratio by 4 -> 48:4. Since we have 4 ounces and 52 sprinkles, we have the ratio 52:4, which is too many.
