A 6-pack of 4oz containers of yogaurt costs 2.99. what is the unit price in cents per ounce? Round to the nearest hundredths of a cent.

First I would take 6 x 4 = 24 oz. Then I would divide 2.99/24 and get an answer of .1245833.

Would my answer be 12 cents/oz or 13 cents/oz

The 2 is hundredths of a dollar.

12 cents = $0.12

To get hundredths of a cent you need $0.1246
