Francois baked just enough cookies to fill all the orders at his bakery. While the cookies were cooling, a kitchen assistant knocked over a cooling rack and spilled 12% percent of the cookies onto the floor. Francois had to bake 36 more cookies to replace them. How many cookies were ordered in total?
36 cookies is 12% of the total order, so 36/12=3 is 1% of the order, and there are 3*100=300 total cookies in the order.
