Answer is C :
She has \(\frac{9}{4}\) and uses \(\frac{4}{3}\) hence remaining is \(\frac{9}{4}  \frac{4}{3} = \frac{11}{12}\) and which is approx 0.9 and lies in the region mentioned in C.

What the question is saying is that \(\frac{2}{3}\)rd cup is used for each batch of cookies and Stephanie bakes 2 batches of cookies. So, Stephanie uses \(\frac{2}{3}\)+\(\frac{2}{3}\)rd or \(\frac{4}{3}\)rd cups of milk. In total, she had \(\frac{9}{4}\) cups of milk and she will be left with \(\frac{9}{4}\)  \(\frac{4}{3}\) = \(\frac{11}{12}\) cups So, the answer is Option C(between \(\frac{3}{4}\)cup and 1 cup) Hope that helps you!

More than \(\frac{3}{2}\) cups Since each batch of cookies requires 2/3 cup of milk, two batches require 2 x 2/3 = 4/3 cups of milk. So after Stephanie makes two batches of cookies, she has 9/4  4/3 = 27/12  16/12 = 11/12 cups of milk left. Answer: C

2/3 cup of milk for 1 batch (2/3 + 2/3)=4/3 cup of milk for 2 batches of cookies So Remaining milk = 9/4  4/3 = 11/12 As 11/12 is between 3/4 and 1 so answer is (C) Posted from my mobile device

Two methods to solve: Method 1  Fractions9/4  2*2/3 =9/4 4/3 = 11/12 1/12 ~0.08 11*0.08 = 0.96 Or alternatively just recognise that 11/12 is just a bit less than 1 Method 2  Decimals 2 1/4 =2.25  4/3 = 1.33 =0.92
