If b books cost d dollars, then d books cost
A. b dollars
B. bd dollars
C. d^2/b
D. b^2/d

These are the worst questions. Its a SHSAT question

• math -

set it up as a units conversion problem.

b books = d dollars, so

b bk/d dol = 1
d dol/b bk = 1
That is, books go at the rate of b/d books/dollar, or d/b \$/bk

Now, you want to convert d books to dollars. You can always multiply by 1, so do it to cancel the units you don't want.

d books * d dol/b books = d^2/b dol
