My questions is this:

Directions :create one statement in english representing an algebraic representation.

I have this:

SIMPLE PROBLEM: A DOZEN EQQS COST $1.20. WHAT IS THE PRICE OF EACH (1) EGG.

ALGEBRAIC REPRESENTATION OF THIS PROBLEM, QUESTION IS

12E=$1.20 OR 12 EGGS = $1.20 NOW YOU NEED TO DIVIDE 12 EGGS BY 12 TO GET 1 EGG WHICH SAYS YOU NEED TO ALSO DIVIDE THE $1.20 BY 12 TO MAINTAIN A BALANCED EQUATION.

12E/12=$1.20/12

1E=$.10 OR ONE EGG EQUALS $ .10

It seems wrong to me how do i word it or how do i show it for the answer of what the directions ask.From what there is here.
