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?

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

yes, half a dozen dozen is 144/2 = 72 but I don't know what that has to do with the problem. The problem states that you have half a dozen dimes which is 6 dimes or 60 cents for a dozen. So you pay 60 cents for one dozen, how much will you pay for 12 dozen?

I have a second part:

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

Yes. half a dozen dozen is 72.

I have a second part that i am not comprehending.

a half dozen dozen oranges at a dozen a half dozen

There is no question so I don't comprehend it either.
