Jonathan is baking several boxes of bread. He used 9cups of water to 12 cups of flour. How much water was used per cup of flour?

Ans:

9cups water/12cups flour = 3/4 cups water

--is the problem solved by acutally dividing 9 by 12 or solve by simplfying fraction of 9/12 (using 3 as common factor)?
