Mark/Kayla/Lycia -- please use the same name for your posts.
Divide the price by the number of ounces to get the price per ounce.
A. 1.69 / 18 = $0.09 per ounce
I am sorry! But thank you Ms. Sue!
You're welcome, Lycia. :-)
A grocery store sells four different jars of peanut butter. Determine which is the best buy, based on the cost per unit.
14 ounce for$1.71
28 ounce for $2.94
24ounce for $2.57
34 ounce for$3.30
I picked a because it is the cheapest jar of peanut butter
