13.20/0.44 = x/1

Cross multiply and solve for x.

2)

[(1405 * 12) + 1 3/4] / 1/2 = ?

**MARCO**, Monday, September 5, 2011 at 3:15pmMs: Sue need to find th estimate:

a rare truffle once sold for $13.20 for 0.44 oz can approximately how much would 1 lb of this truffle cost?

would it be estimate;

13.00 x 0.40 = 32.5 x 16 = 5.20?

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, September 5, 2011 at 3:30pmI don't understand your estimation. Shouldn't 1 pound cost about four times what about 1/4 pound cost?

**MARCO**, Monday, September 5, 2011 at 3:34pmi thought i would estimate: 13.20 to 13 and .44 oz to .40 1300 divide by 40 is 32.5 per oz so 16oz equal to 1lb 32.5 x 16 : $5.20

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, September 5, 2011 at 3:57pmI made a mistake above.

0.44 of an ounce is about 1/2 an ounce. One pound = 16 ounces. So you'd multiply 13 by 30. That gives a cost per pound of around $400.

13 * 30 = $390.

**MARCO**, Monday, September 5, 2011 at 6:30pmi am really confused is this how it should be for the actual cost

$13.20 divide 0.44 oz =

30 x 16 = $480 for 1 lb

for the estimate:

$13 divide by 0.40oz =

32.5 x 16 = $520

pls advise
