How much water do you mix in with baby formula? Help ASAP!

I am watching a friends baby, she just brought over a tupperware thing of formula and I have no idea how much water to mix with it? She's 7 months old and I know it's regular formula, not the specialty kinds. I've texted her and asked, but she hasn't gotten back to me and I have one unhappy baby on my hands!

  • if there is no scoop, one scoop equals a tablespoon (I just went to check to be sure!)
