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 - 20

250 = 3 - 20c

250 = 20 - 3c

250 = 20c - 3

    250 = 3c - 20

    Step-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 = 3c

    270 = 3c

    c = 90

    They need to sell 90 dozens. Got milk? : -)
