    25/14 cup of butter are required to make 10 dozen cookies.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Cup of butter required to make 4 dozen cookies = 5/7

    To find 1 dozen cookies :

    Rate = Cup of butter required / number of dozen

    Let, the cup of butter for 1 dozen be’x’.

    ⇒ (5/7) / 4 = x/1

    x = 5/28

    The cup of butter required for 10 dozen of cookies :

    ⇒ 10\times (cup of butter for 1 dozen cookies)

    ⇒ 10\times\\ 5/28

    ⇒ 50/28

    25/14

    Therefore, 25/14 cup of butter are required to make 10 dozen cookies.
