Ms Sue , Is the answer to this equation : The same number of cookies,C, in each of three tins makes a total of 36 cookies. Is the equation 36 = C divided by 3?

No.

3c = 36

Because there are 3 tins, which can be represented by C is C+C+C=36 so 3C=36, then you solve for C so yes, but I think the equation is 3C=36

Right.
