Re: cupcakes or friends -— A lot would depend upon how good the cupcakes were.
so, if that were an algebraic equation, it would be:
if X = the unknown amount of cupcakes left,
(2 × 12) + X = 30
24 + x = 30
x = 30-24
x = 6
sure, that’s fairly elementary, but since I haven’t done algebra in over 50 years, I’m surprised I remembered the process
She can hear you!
