    Answer:

    3x – 20 = 250

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given,

    The cost of cookies per dozen = $ 3,

    Let x be the number of dozen cookies sold,

    So, the cost of x dozen of cookies = x × cost of cookies per dozen

    = 3x

    Now, the amount of rent = $ 20,

    Thus, total earning = cost of x dozen of cookies – rent

    = 3x – 20

    If $ 250 is needed to raise,

    Then total earning = $ 250

    3x – 20 = 250

    Which is the required equation.
