    50 people require 4 cups of sugar
    1 person will require 4/50 cups of sugar
    100 people will require 4/50 x 300 cups of sugar = 24 cups of sugar

    6 cups of sugar = 1 bag
    1 cup of sugar = 1/6 bag
    24 cups of sugar = 1/6 x 24 bag = 4 bags

    Therefore, 300 people require 4 bags of sugar
