    A recipe calls for 2 cups of flour to make 24 cookies. If you want to make 36 cookies, how much flour do you need?

    Solution:
    Let the number of cups of flour required to make 36 cookies be x

    Using the concept of proportion

    2:24::x:36

    Thus 2*36= x*24

    On solving the above equation

    x=3

    Thus you need 3 cups of flour to make 36 cookies
