Given: The recipe for a cake called for 2/3 cup of sugar.

Asked: How many cakes did Tanya bake for her birthday, if she used 4 cups of sugar ?

In 2/3 cups of sugar => 1 cake is baked
In 1 cups of sugar => 3/2 cakes are baked
In 4 cups of sugar => 3/2*4 = 6 cakes are baked.

IMO D

We can use the following proportion:

(2/3)/1 = 4/n

2/3 = 4/n

2n = 12

n = 6

Answer: D
