Answer:
1818 cups of sugar
Stepbystep 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]
