I added 1.25 and 3 and got 1.28
Then I multiplyed by 5. I don't know If i did it right or If I'm suppose to do that

Ms. Sue
1.25 + 3 = 4.25
4.25 / 2 = 2.125

No. You need the total amount of sugar for 5 batches of brownies.
Think about it. One recipe alone calls for 3 cups of sugar. Five recipes can't be less than 3 cups.
