Answer:
9/4 cup of sugar.
Stepbystep explanation:
It has been given that
3/4 cup of sugar is needed to make a cake.
Now, she has decided to make a huge cup which needs to triple amount of ingredients that she needs in a single cake.
Therefore, in order to make the huge cake of her family she needs three times of 3/4 cup of sugar.
Hence,
[tex]\frac{3}{4}\times3\\\\=\frac{9}{4}[/tex]
Therefore, she needs 9/4 cup of sugar.
