A 20 ounce bag of popcorn costs \$2.80 at the movie theater, if the unit price remains the same, how much would a 35 ounce bag cost ?

Use a proportion. Cross multiply and solve for x.

20/2.80 = 35/x

-First find the cost per ounce:
2.80 divided by 20 = .14 per ounce
-Then, multiply by 35 to find the price for 35 ounces:
.14 x 35 = 4.90
-Therefore, a 35 ounce bag of popcorn would be \$4.90!
Hope this helped!

n+(-5)
when n=321

it is 4.90
