Let chocolate chips = x change flour to proper fraction: flour = (5/2) cups flour is (equal to) (13/4) chocolate chips {{{5/2=(13*x)/4}}} multiply both sides by 4 to clear the denominators: {{{10=13x}}} divide both sides by 13: {{{10/13=x}}} the amount of chocolate chips required is {{{10/13}}} cups
