Explanation

Set up a cross-multiplying diagram and complete it with the information provided:


Cups of Sugar\(\frac{3}{2}\)x
Cookies2430


Solve for x:

(3/2)(30) = (24)(x) → 45 = 24x → 1.875 = x

Compare the quantities:

Quantity A: 1.875 cups
Quantity B: 12 cups

Hence Option B is greater.

Hence Option B is correct.


Thus, column B should be 2 instead of 12, right?
