4. you divided the wrong way

suppose you had:
4 oranges cost \$2.00
how much does 1 orange cost ?
Would you not divide \$2.00 by 4 ??

so if 24 jars cost \$27.60
wouldn't you divide 27.60 by 24 to get the cost of 1 jar?

8. It couldn't be D because that more than 27 jars 27.60/24=1.15 24/27.60= 0.86956521739(rounded 0.87) Which one would it be?
