Find the maximum number of muffins that can be made with 18 cups of flour. Let b represent the number of batches of muffins. Let m represent the number of muffins. There are 12 muffins in a batch of muffins. $b=18\ cups\div\frac{2\ cups}{1\ batch}=9\ batches$ Find the number of muffins in 9 batches. $m=9\ batches\times\frac{12\ muffins}{1\ batch}=108\ muffins$ With 18 cups of flour, you can make up to 108 muffins.
