A recipe for banana oat muffins calls for 3/4 cups of oats. You need to triple the recipe to make enough for your whole family. How much oats do you need?


  1. Answer: 2 and 1/4 cups of oats (9/4 cups of oats)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We know that, for the recipe, we need 3/4 cups of oats.

    Now, you want to triple the recipe (then you need to use 3 times more ingredients).

    This means that, if for the recipe you needed 3/4 cups of oats, when we triple that we have:

    3*(3/4 cups) = 9/4 cups

    This means that you need to use 9/4 cups of oats.

    And we could also write this as:

    9/4 cups = 8/4 cups + 1/4 cups = 2 + 1/4 cups of oats.
