This question should be pretty easy compared to others. Can someone help me evaluate an(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); equationfor finding the profit after selling cookies for 75¢. I will make as many as I can make, with a budget of $100, and sell them all.

Each batch needs:

- 2 pounds of flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 pound of sugar
- 4 cups of milk

Wholesale costs:

- $8 per 2 pounds of flour
- $2 per 12 eggs
- $8 per 1 pound of sugar
- $3 per 16 cups of milk

I tried to find a relationship between the costs over time, but mit was inconclusive. Costs $21 for the first batch, $8 for the second, $8 for the 3rd, $10 for the 4th, $8 for the 5th. Theres a lot more different ingredients than amount of batches.

Remember that I can use surplus materials from the last batch that weren't used.

Cost per cookie times number of cookies equals income. Profit equals the income minus the cost of ingredients. But, I don't know how many batches, so I don't know how many cookies.

I give much thanks for your future contributions.
