Lisa wants to purchase calculators. At one store, she can buy a set of 5 calculators for $80.00, or she can buy 24 calculators for $264.00 at another store.

a) Which store provides Lisa with a better buy?

b) Is it possible that there could be a circumstance where it would make more sense for Lisa to purchase the calculators at the store which did not provide the better buy?

c) Provide an example of some item that you have found varies in unit price depending upon the quantity you buy. For this item, would you always take advantage of a lower unit price? If not, explain why not.

For C, if you found an item that has more in it, say you get a liter of soda, when you could also buy the smaller bottles of soda, would you just buy the smaller bottles to save money, cause if you put them into a 2 liter bottle, it would equal the same amount, just a more easier, lower price of doing it.

I recently bought a printer at a small shop that I probably could have bought for less at Best Buy. But I wanted the good service I've experienced at the small shop.
