flour$= 180 g$
fat$= 67.5 g$
eggs$= 3$

#### Explanation:

I would try to find the amout of ingredients for one person as:
flour $\frac{120}{6} = 20 g$
fat $\frac{45}{6} = 7.5 g$
eggs $\frac{2}{6} = \frac{1}{3}$
Now I multiply the quantities for one person times $9$ to get:
flour$= 20 \times 9 = 180 g$
fat$= 7.5 \times 9 = 67.5 g$
eggs$= \frac{1}{3} \times 9 = 3$
