A certain recipe requires \(\frac{3}{2}\) cups of sugar and makes 2 dozen cookies. (1 dozen = 12 )

Quantity A

Quantity B

The amount of sugar required for the same recipe to make 30 cookies

2 cups

A) Quantity A is greater. B) Quantity B is greater. C) The two quantities are equal. D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

GIVEN: For every 3/2 cups of sugar, we get 24 cookies

We can solve this question with equivalent ratios

We're comparing cups of sugar with number of cookies. Let x = the cups of sugar required to make 30 cookies

We get: (3/2)/24 = (x)/30 Cross multiply to get: (24)(x) = (3/2)(30) Simplify: 24x = 45 Solve: x = 45/24

ASIDE: Since 48/24 = 2, we know that 45/24 is less than 2

We get: QUANTITY A: some number less than 2 QUANTITY B: 2

Answer: B
