What is her total cost for the two hundred cookies? (Hint: Multiply.)

What is forty-five percent of this? (Hint: Multiply.)

What total, then, does she want to earn? (Hint: Add.)

How many cookies will be thrown out? (Hint: Multiply.)

How many cookies, then, will she be able to sell? (Hint: Subtract.)

Given the total (in money) that she wants to earn and the total number of cookies she can sell, how much should she charge for each (that is, "per") cookie? (Hint: Divide.)
