Polynomial Division and Rational Expressions
The number of cookies Jen brings to a party is directly proportional to one fewer than the number of guests at the party. She's on the outs with one of the partygoers and doesn't want him to have a cookie. In fact, that's the whole reason she made cookies in the first place. For spite. If Jen brings 33 cookies to a party with 12 guests, what proportionality constant does Jen use to determine how many cookies to bring?
