Can you help me form an equation. Trying to help my friend for a job promotion.

For every cup of sugar used, a certain recipe requires E eggs. Eggs cost D dollars and sugar costs F dollars. If John starts with X dollars, follows this recipe and uses C cups of sugar, how much money does he have left after buying all ingredients?
