Homework Help: Math

Posted by Punkie on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 at 10:37pm.

The two cereal boxes shown have corresponding edges in a ratio of 2:3. If the smaller box sells for $2.50 and the larger box for $4.00, which is the better buy? Why? What assumption(s) do you have to make when solving the problem? Estimate, then check.

Could someone show me how to solve this? I don't know what formulas to use.
