BW made c cookies to divide evenly amoung O,TS,SB,and RD and BW himself. Write an algebraic expression that represents the number of cookies each person will receive. I have no clue...sorry those were intitals the problem characters had long names.

I think it would just be c/5, since there are 5 people. If c=20, each person would get 4, so it makes sense.

There are 5 cookie eaters.
cookiesreceivedbyeach= c/5
