18 eggs

Step-by-step explanation:

1: x/24=6/8

2: 24*6=144-(1st step for cross multiplication)

3: 144/8=18-(2nd step for cross multiplication)

Cross multiplication: Write your 2(or more) equivilent fractions, and write your variable as x or any other letter. If your variable is in the numerator, take the denominator and multiply it with the other fraction’s numerator and divide your answer with the denominator of the other fraction. If x is in the denominator, switch your variable with the other fractions numerator and solve the same way you would if the variable was in the numerator-(sorry if I made it to complex, but the idea is really simple:)

18 eggs

Step-by-step explanation:

first we divide 24 by 8 to see how many eggs are in one omlete

24/8=3

Now we take 3 times 6 ( because there is 6 people you are making it for)

6×3=18

18 eggs
