24tbs of vanilla remain

Work Step by Step

The function would be y=-2b+48 because we start with 48 vanilla teaspoons. We lose 2 tablespoons of vanilla every time we make a batch of cookies. To find the amount of vanilla remaining after 12 batches, plug in 12 for b and solve: y=-2b+48 y=-2(12)+48 y=-24+48 y=24 There are 24 teaspoons of vanilla left after you make 12 cookie batches.
