Let x be the amount of sugar, in cups needed to make \(\displaystyle{2}{\frac{{{1}}}{{{2}}}}\) dozen or 30 cupcakes. Using the ratio sugar/cupcake, we write the proportion:
\(\displaystyle\frac{{x}}{{30}}=\frac{{1}}{{3}}/{6}\)
Solve for x:
\(\displaystyle\frac{{x}}{{30}}=\frac{{1}}{{18}}\)
Multiply both sides by 30:
\(\displaystyle{\left(\frac{{x}}{{30}}\right)}{\left({30}\right)}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{18}}\right)}{\left({30}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}=\frac{{5}}{{3}}={1}{\left(\frac{{2}}{{3}}\right)}\) cups
So, the answer is choice A.

The bulk density of soil is defined as the mass of dry solidsper unit bulk volume. A high bulk density implies a compact soilwith few pores. Bulk density is an important factor in influencing root development, seedling emergence, and aeration. Let X denotethe bulk density of Pima clay loam. Studies show that X is normally distributed with \(\displaystyle\mu={1.5}\) and \(\displaystyle\sigma={0.2}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}\).
(a) What is thedensity for X? Sketch a graph of the density function. Indicate onthis graph the probability that X lies between 1.1 and 1.9. Findthis probability.
(b) Find the probability that arandomly selected sample of Pima clay loam will have bulk densityless than \(\displaystyle{0.9}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}\).
(c) Would you be surprised if a randomly selected sample of this type of soil has a bulkdensity in excess of \(\displaystyle{2.0}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}\)? Explain, based on theprobability of this occurring.
(d) What point has the property that only 10% of the soil samples have bulk density this high orhigher?
(e) What is the moment generating function for X?

A wagon with two boxes of Gold, having total mass 300 kg, is cutloose from the hoses by an outlaw when the wagon is at rest 50m upa 6.0 degree slope. The outlaw plans to have the wagon roll downthe slope and across the level ground, and then fall into thecanyon where his confederates wait. But in a tree 40m from thecanyon edge wait the Lone Ranger (mass 75.0kg) and Tonto (mass60.0kg). They drop vertically into the wagon as it passes beneaththem. a) if they require 5.0 s to grab the gold and jump out, willthey make it before the wagon goes over the edge? b) When the twoheroes drop into the wagon, is the kinetic energy of the system ofthe heroes plus the wagon conserved? If not, does it increase ordecrease and by how much?
