1. The required number of batches of cookies corresponding to the 45 ounces is 7.5 batches. Option C is correct.
Given that,
The number of ounces of chocolate chips per batch of cookies can be represented with the equation y = 6x, where y represents ounces of chocolate chips and x represents batches of cookies.

What is proportionality?

proportionality is defined as between two or more sets of values, and how these values are related to each other in the sense are they directly proportional or inversely proportional to each other.
Here,
Given proportionality,
y = 6x
Put y = 45
x = 45 / 6
x = 7.5
Thus, the required number of batches of cookies corresponding to the 45 ounces is 7.5 batches. Option C is correct.
