Answer:3x – 20 = 250Step-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 = 250Which is the required equation.
