    Roy uses 1/4 cup of batter for each muffin. Which list shows the amounts of batter he will use depending on the number of muffins he makes? A: 1/4} {1/5} {1/6} {1/7} {1/8}. B: 1/4,2/4,3/4,4/4,5/4. C: 1/4,2/8,3/12,4/16,5/20. D: 1/4,2/8,4/16,6/24,8/32.

    I think this is one of the reducing fractions problem: If we look at option A.{1/4} {1/5} {1/6} {1/7} {1/8}. Here, the reduced form of all the fractions is not equal to 1/4If we look at option B. 1/4,2/4,3/4,4/4,5/4. Here, the reduced form of all the fractions is not equal to 1/4 if we look at option C. 1/4,2/8,3/12,4/16,5/20. Here, the reduced form of all the fractions is not equal to 1/4If we look at option D.1/4,2/8,4/16,6/24,8/32. Here, the reduced form of all the fractions is equal to 1/4 i.e. 1/4=1/42/8=1/44/14=1/46/24=1/45/20=1/4So, the correct answer is D.
