cookies and gave them to her grandchildren. One of the grandchildren, Cindy, received
c

8 grandchildren.

2 Answer

  • Answer:

    [tex]12-c[/tex]  Cookies

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The question is to find how many cookies did Cindy receive (write as an expression)?

    Total cookies baked = 96

    If evenly divided among 8 grandchildren, each would get:

    [tex]\frac{96}{8}=12[/tex]

    Each grandchildren would have gotten 12 cookies

    Now, Cindy received "c" fewer than this (12), so Cindy received:

    12 - c  Cookies

    Cindy Received = 12 - c  Cookies

  • Answer:

    96/8 - c.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    She is divideing among the grandkids so it would be 98/8-c
