If each person gets the same amount of cookies, and there is no decimal/fraction of a cookie, each person would get 9 cookies. 75 divided by 8 = 9.375.  Since there are 8 coustomers, multiply the .375 by eight. This will give you 3 leftover cookies.  Each person would get 9 cookies, with 3 cookies remainder/ left over.
