In your industrial oven, you bake two cooking sheets with 12 scones each, two baking sheets with 20 cookies each, and one baking sheet with 2 scones and 10 cookies.
Yesterday the bakery earned $797.30 just from the sale of the cookis. Write and solve an equation that represents how many cookies were sold.

Total cookies baked = 2*20 + 10 = 50 cookies
50x = 797.30
x= $15.95/cookie... wow that's expensive!
Okay... this is actually the equation of how much each cookie cost and assuming that the bakery sold all 50 cookies. This is not how many cookies sold... I don't think it is possible to answer that question with the information given... maybe someone else can help.
