4-58.

Ms. B is making snickerdoodle cookies. Her recipe uses one-and-a-half teaspoons of cinnamon to make two-dozen cookies. If she needs to make thirteen-dozen cookies in order to give one cookie to each of her students, how much cinnamon will she need? Homework Help ✎

Use proportions to solve this problem. Assign a variable to the unknown number of teaspoons of cinnamon.

For this case, we will use the variable *n*.

Multiply both sides by 2.

Multiply both sides by 13.

Divide by 2 on both sides.

Remember to use the conversion factor to determine how many tablespoons and teaspoons Ms. B will need.

19.5 = 2*n*
