I have a question:

How would you solve this?

a dozen dozen apples at half a dozen dimes a dozen?

In this cause is dozen 12? And half a dozen dimes in 60 cents?

would that be 120? b/c a dozen dozen is 24 so u have 24 apples and then you have 60 cents per dozen so two dozen would be 120?

a dozen dozen is 144. I have that cleared

a dozen dozen is 144. I have that cleared

if it's 60 cents per dozen, then wouldn't it be 12*60

Yes, a dozen is 12, and half a dozen dimes is 60 cents. Are you trying to find the price?

If you are, then:
60 cents for a dozen of apples
sooo if you need the price of a dozen dozens, you would need to figure out:
60x12
Because there are 12 dozens, and each dozen is 60 cents!

I'm sorry if that wasn't the answer that you were looking for.

and a dozen dozen is 144 correct?

yes.

Thank-you =)

So half a dozen dozen is 144/2 so that's 72 correct?

So half a dozen dozen is 144/2 so that's 72 correct?

60x12=720
Therefore, a dozen dozens of apples, priced at 60 cents a dozen, would cost \$7.20

ok thanx but what is:

So half a dozen dozen is 144/2 so that's 72 correct?

half a dozen dozen is 72 :)

yeah

Thank-you
