2 3/16 cups

5 1/16 cups

*Correct Answer : D*

We are asked to find the number of cups of flour that will be used to make 90 cookies.

First, we convert 2 ¼ into improper fraction as:

Letting x to be the number of cups of flour, we set up a proportion equation with number of cookies on numerator and number of cups of flour on the denominator becomes:

Solve the value of x by cross-products

Dividing both sides by 60, the above equation result to

Thus, the number of cups of flour needed to make 90 cookies is 81/16 cups, which is equal to 5 1/16 cups.

The percentage change in weight is found in three steps below:

Absolute change in weight=final weight-initial weight

Absolute change in weight=(left|120-153 ight|=left|-33 ight|=33)

Relative change in weight=*(frac{absolute change}{initial weight}=frac{33}{153}=0.216)*

Percent change=relative change * 100%

Percent change=0.216*100%=21.6%

The percent change in weight lost is 21.6 %, which is about 22%.
