the number of cakses needed for a party c, is dependent upon the number of guest at the party, g. which equation shows the number of cakses as a function of the number of guests A: f(c)=g/12 B: f(g)=g/12 C: f(c)=c/12 D: f(g)=c/12 This makes absolutely no sense...

    I am not a baker but A. looks good. This assumes that a cake is cut into 12 slices, and the guest only get one slice.

    it makes no sense to me either because you have \[f(c)\] on one side and no "c" on the other

    crappy notation for sure. maybe they mean \[c=\frac{g}{12}\] or \[c=f(g)=\frac{g}{12}\]
