Overview:

In this video segment from Cyberchase, Bianca helps a friend get ready for a school bake sale. They are making cupcakes but when they realize that the recipe only makes a dozen cupcakes, decide it is not enough. They want to make double that amount, so they decide to double the recipe, which includes doubling a fraction that results in an improper fraction.
