# Math Help - Solve an equation representing a sale

1. ## Solve an equation representing a sale

If I sell cookies for $1.29 each, and yesterday I sell$532.77 in cookies. How would I write and solve an equation that represents how many cookies were sold?
Thanks for the help!

2. Step #1 -- Name Stuff!!
Name what?
What does it want? Name that.

C = Number of Cookies sold yesterday.

Now what?

3. Is it $532.77/$1.29=c? I appreciate any help!

4. I really want just to say "yes", but it causes me pain.

That may be correct. It depends on teh definition of "c". What is your definition?
