Let Jane sell "a" cookies 96 cents/cookie.

Thus total money earned from cookies = a*96 cents

Let Jane buy "b" popsicles 30 cents/popsicle.

Thus total money spent on popsicles = b*30

As she had no money left over, total money earned from cookies =total money spent on popsicles

=> a*96 = b*30

=> a = (b*30)/96

= b* 5/16

For a to be minimum, use b=16 and we have Minimum a =5. (OPTION B)

## Jane sold cookies at a fair for 96 cents each; she then used that money to buy popsicles for 30 cents each. If she had no money left over, what is the fewest number of cookies she could have sold? Print
