A. 1.9 cents per inch

B. 3.8 cents per inch

C. 11.6 cents per inch

D. 16.06 cents per inch

Please explain how to solve. I subtracted 2.19 from 3.59 and got 1.4 and divided by 36 and got .038. How does it come out to be 0.038 cents per inch?

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 6:54pmYou're right -- but -- you were working with dollars and fractions of a dollar.

0.038 is $0.038 -- a small part of a dollar.

Multiply by 100 to get 3.8 cents per inch.
