    Answer:

    a) 6 cups

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We can use a ratio for this:

    sugar : flour

    2 : 3

    x : 9

    2       3

    —  =  —

    x        9

    Cross multiply:

    2 (9) = 3x

    18 = 3x

    6 = x

    x = 6

    To double-check, you can plug the value back into the ratio and make them fractions, then simplify to see if it gets the original amount. Here’s what I’m talking about:

    2 : 3

    x : 9     ======>     6 : 9

    [tex]\frac{6}{9} \frac{/3}{/3} = \frac{2}{3}[/tex]
