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.
