Given, Kari bought 3 boxes of cookies to share with a book club.
Each box contains 12 cookies.
So, in total we have 3 x 12 cookies = 36 cookies.
Now, we have to find how many cookies can each person p will get.
Let, the total number of persons be x.
Then, after equally sharing the cookies,
Hence, the algebraic expression is
7 people, 10 people and 11 people
If p = 7, then each person would get 5 cookies, with 1 cookie left over.
If p = 10, then each person would get 3 cookies, with 6 cookies left over.
If p = 11, then each person would get 3 cookies, with 3 cookies left over.
48 / 6 = x
in this case, x will equal the amount of money in each card!
x therefore will be 8.
trent had $8 in each birthday card.
