Kim needs 3/4 cup of flour to make 12 cookies. How much flour would she need to make 60 cookies?

Result

x =  3.75

Solution:

m12=34=0.75 k=6012=5  x=k m12=5 0.75=154=3.75m_{12}=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 4 }=0.75 \ \\ k=\dfrac{ 60 }{ 12 }=5 \ \\ \ \\ x=k \cdot \ m_{12}=5 \cdot \ 0.75=\dfrac{ 15 }{ 4 }=3.75

This is wrong solution. The answer should be: x = 60/12 * 3/4 = 3.75
