Mathematical expressions


Melody is organizing a bake sale and making a program to help her plan the ingredients.
Each batch of cookies requires 3 eggs, and she's going to make 9 batches. This code calculates the total eggs required:
eggsInBatch ← 3 
numBatches ← 9
neededEggs ← eggsInBatch * numBatches
Melody realizes she'll need to buy more eggs than necessary, since she needs to buy eggs by the dozen.
Now she wants to calculate how many eggs will be leftover in the final carton of eggs. That will help her decide whether to make extra icing.
Which line of code successfully calculates and stores the number of leftover eggs in the final carton?
