Q:
# a warehouse store sells 5.5-ounce cans of tuna in packages of 6. a package of 6 cans costs $9.24. the store also sells 6.5-ounce cams of the same tuna in packages of 3 cans for $4.68. it also sells 3.5-ounce cans in packages of 4 cans for $4.48. which package has the lowest cost per ounce of tuna?

Accepted Solution

A:

9.24 / (5.5 * 6) = 9.24 / 33 = 0.28 per oz

4.68 / (6.5 * 3) = 4.68 / 19.5 = 0.24 per oz

4.48 / (3.5 * 4) = 4.48 / 14 = 0.32 per oz

so the lowest cost is the 6.5 oz tuna in packs of 3 cans for 4.68

4.68 / (6.5 * 3) = 4.68 / 19.5 = 0.24 per oz

4.48 / (3.5 * 4) = 4.48 / 14 = 0.32 per oz

so the lowest cost is the 6.5 oz tuna in packs of 3 cans for 4.68
