an 8 ounce can of tomatoes costs $1.14. an 12 12 once can costs $1.75. which can of tomatoes has the better unit price? PLEASE SHOW WORK

math UNIT RATE 
drwls,
Unit price is price per ounce, usually expressed in cents per ounce. For the first can,
1.14/8 = 0.1425 $/oz = 14.25 cents/oz
Now you do the second can and compare them. They are pretty close in unit price. Sometimes the bigger size is not the better deal.
