Four brands of soap are available in a local store. Compute the unit price and decide which brand is the best buy.

Brand Ounces Total Price Unit Price
Squeaky Clean 5.5 \$0.36
Smell Fresh 7.5 0.41
Feel Nice 4.5 0.31
Look Bright 6.5 0.44

Compute the unit price and decide which brand is the best buy.

• math -

To find the best buy, you'll need to figure out the price per ounce (unit price).

Squeaky Clean at 5.5 ounces costs \$0.36.
Divide: 0.36 / 5.5 = \$0.065 per ounce

Smell Fresh: 0.41 / 7.5 = \$0.055 per ounce.

I think you can finish these calculations and decide which is the best buy.

• math -

the best buy is Smell Fresh ar \$0.054

Sure hope this is right!
