THE BAKE OFF TEAM MATHS CHALLENGE ANSWER

Thank you to those people who responded to the Maths challenge.

Here are the solutions:

9 children needed 3/4 of a cup of sugar each, which means there needs to be a calculation of :

9  X 3/4 =   9/1 X 3/4 = 27/4  =   6  3/4 of sugar altogether

 

2/3 of a cup of butter is needed for 12 cookies.  Each person only needs to make 6 cookies.

Therefore 6 cookies need half the quantity of butter, which is  2/3 divided by 2 = 1/3 of a cup.

There are 9 children, 1/3 x 9 = 3 cups of butter.

Hope you had fun exploring the challenge!
