Hi Londyn,

From the information given;

3 cups => 4 bowls

Therefore,

**1 cup => 4÷3 bowls (divide Left and Right with a common divisor of 3)**

1 cup => 4/3

since 1 box of cereal contains 9 cups,

**9 cups => 4/3 X 9 (multiply Left and Right with a common multiplier of 9)**

9 cups = 12 bowls

Therefore, 1 box of cereal can fill-up 12 bowls of cereal

We are told each box of cereal contains a total of 9 cups.

The worker then uses 3 cups to fill 4 bowls of cereal.

There are 3 sets of 3 cups per box, because 9/3 equals 3

. Therefore 3 sets (of 3 cups) times 4 bowls equals 12 bowls of cereal.

As the problem states, for every three cups of cereal, four bowls can be filled. That means that in six cups of cereal, you can fill eight bowls of cereal. Therefore, nine cups of cereal can fill up a maximum of twelve bowls of cereal.

Sometimes it helps to look at this a pattern inside a table

3 cups = 4 bowls

6 cups = 8 bowls

9 cups = 12 bowls

Hope this helps!
