=> for 24 cookies he need = 1 4/3 cups of sugar 

                               i.e 7/3 cups

                1 cookie he need = 7/3 / 24

                                            = 7/3 * 1/24

             for 18 cookies he need = 7/(3 * 24 4) * 18 * 3

                                                  = 7/4 cups 

                                            i.e 1 3/4 cups
