How much sugar did Tara use in the donut topping?

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    1818 cups of sugar

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First we add the ratio of sugar and cinnamon together,

    so 3u + 2u = 5u.

    Now to find out what u (unit) is, we divide 3030 by 5.

    [tex]5u =3030[/tex]

    [tex]u = \frac{3030}{5} = 606[/tex]

    Since sugar is 3 units, we need to multiply it by 3

    [tex]3u = 3(606) = 1818[/tex]
