Question

Answer

This question has a lot of details. So track it with a table.

The number of competitors, children and adults are easy to
work out given the fractions provided in the question.
Working is in the table.

Since ratio of milo is 3:2:1, we can let it be 3u:2u:1u.
Then actual numbers are 594u, 924u and 231u (working in table).
That sums to 1749u = 3498. This means u = 3498/1749 = 2.

Spectators received 924u + 231u = 1155u = 2310 cups of milo.

(If you find this useful, please accept the answer.)
