Answer:It would be C, 24x +12=60; 2 batches

Step-by-step explanation:You can think of the problem backwards. She already has 12 rolls, so subtract that from 60. This will give you 48. Then, since she makes rolls in batches of 24, the “x” wpuld represent how many more batches of 24 she needs to get to that 48. 48 divided by 24 is 2, meaning she would bake 2 more batches to get to 60. Put this idea into an equation, and you have C.
