    The total number of cupcakes that Natalie dropped is 7.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    This question can be solved using a rule of three.

    The amount of cupcakes that she has, which is 20, is 100% = 1. How many cupcakes is 35% = 0.35?

    20 cupcakes - 1

    x cupcakes - 0.35

    x = 20*0.35 = 7

    The total number of cupcakes that Natalie dropped is 7.
