16 cakes can be baked in 1 hour. Assume all the cakes are baked at the same rate and there is no difference in the time required for each cake as the total number changes.

The number of cakes that can be baked in `5 3/4` hours is `5 3/4*16` = `(23/4)*16 = 92`

92 cakes can be baked in `5 3/4` hours.
