Q:
# The sports boosters club is having a bake sale to buy uniforms. They want to raise $250. They need to rent a booth for $20. How many dozen cookies will they need to sell if they charge $3 per dozen?Which equation could be used to solve this problem?250 = 3c - 20250 = 3 - 20c250 = 20 - 3c250 = 20c - 3

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:250 = 3c - 20Step-by-step explanation:They have a goal to raise $250... but on top of that they will also need to pay $20 for the booth... that has to be covered by the cookies sales too, ensuring they have a net balance of $250 at the end.So, with 250 = 3c - 20, they will cover that booth expense.But how many dozens of cookies do they have to sell to reach their goal?250 + 20 = 3c270 = 3cc = 90 They need to sell 90 dozens.
