  1. One way to solve it is to first change 3/4 to 0.75

    Set up a proportion, cross multiply, and solve for x.

    18/0.75 = 24/x

    18x = 18
    x = 1 cup

  3. HERE, 18 COOKIES NEED 3/4 CUP SUGAR
    -> 1 COOKIE REQUIRE (1/18)*(3/4)=1/24 CUP SUGAR
    -> 24 COOKIES REQUIRE 24*(1/24)=1 CUP SUGAR.
