Liann works in the old time soda shoppe the shop sells shakes. a single shake uses 1/8 cup syrup, a double shake uses 1/4 cup syrup, a tripple milk shake uses 3/8 cup syrup. How many shakes can she make of each with 3 cups of syrup?

Do you mean how many single shakes could she make with 3 cups of syrup, then how many double shakes could she make, and how many triples? Or, do you need to mix and match the shake sizes?

mix and match the shake sizes to equal using 3 cups

The question asks how many shakes of each size can be made.
Single:
(1/8) / 3 = 8 * 3 = 24 shakes
Double:
Triple: 
24 shakes
