[60 / 12] x 5 = 25 grams of butter in 60 cookies.

1 gram = 10 decigrams.

25 x 10 = 250 decigrams of butter in 60 cookies.

\(5g\times\frac{10dg}{g}:12\ cookies=x:60\ cookies\)

\(5g\times\frac{10dg}{g}\times 60 \ cookies=x\times 12\ cookies\)

\(x=\large\frac{5g\times 10dg\times 60 \ cookies}{g\times 12\ cookies}\)

\(x=250dg\)

\( In\ 60\ cookies\ 250\ dg\ butter\ are\ available.\)
