Ms: Sue need to find th estimate:
a rare truffle once sold for \$13.20 for 0.44 oz can approximately how much would 1 lb of this truffle cost?
would it be estimate;
13.00 x 0.40 = 32.5 x 16 = 5.20?

• MATH -

I don't understand your estimation. Shouldn't 1 pound cost about four times what about 1/4 pound cost?

• MATH -

i thought i would estimate: 13.20 to 13 and .44 oz to .40 1300 divide by 40 is 32.5 per oz so 16oz equal to 1lb 32.5 x 16 : \$5.20

• MATH -

0.44 of an ounce is about 1/2 an ounce. One pound = 16 ounces. So you'd multiply 13 by 30. That gives a cost per pound of around \$400.

13 * 30 = \$390.

• MATH -

i am really confused is this how it should be for the actual cost
\$13.20 divide 0.44 oz =
30 x 16 = \$480 for 1 lb

for the estimate:
\$13 divide by 0.40oz =
32.5 x 16 = \$520
