A 6-pack of 4oz containers of yogaurt costs 2.99. what is the unit price in cents per ounce? Round to the nearest hundredths of a cent.

First I would take 6 x 4 = 24 oz. Then I would divide 2.99/24 and get an answer of .1245833.
Would my answer be 12 cents/oz or 13 cents/oz

1. Ms. Sue

Your instructions say to round to the nearest hundredths of a cent.

.1245833 = \$0.1246

twelve and forty-hundredths of a cent.

2. Ms. Sue

Correction:

twelve cents and forty-six hundredths

3. Bart

I do not understand the 46 hundredeths. isn't the 2 in the hundredths?

4. Ms. Sue

The 2 is hundredths of a dollar.

12 cents = \$0.12

To get hundredths of a cent you need \$0.1246

For the first time ever I understand. Thank you very much. Your correction helped me out immensely.
