the cost of 6oz. of chicken is \$2.00. how much would it cost for 1.5lbs. of chicken ? (16oz=1lb.)

2 simple ways:

1.
if 6 oz cost 2.00
then 1 oz costs 2.00/6 = .3333.
and then 16 oz cost 16(.3333..)
=5.33

2. by ratios

2.00/6 = x/16
cross multiply and solve for x

you will get the same calculations as above.
