Q:
# Greg needs to buy plastic spoons. Brand A has a box of 25 spoons for $1.99 . Brand B has a box of 42 spoons for $3.89 . Find the unit price for each brand. Then state which brand is the better buy based on the unit price. Round your answers to the nearest cent.

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the price per spoon of brand A, divide the cost by the amount of spoons:

1.99 / 25 = 0.0796

Repeat this process for brand B:

3.89 / 42 = 0.0926

Brand A, at $0.08 a unit, is the better buy of brands A and B.

Hope this helps.

1.99 / 25 = 0.0796

Repeat this process for brand B:

3.89 / 42 = 0.0926

Brand A, at $0.08 a unit, is the better buy of brands A and B.

Hope this helps.
