a. 4 bags
b. 13 bags
c. 24 bags
d. 50 bags

• math -

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
