  4. If you wish to find out the price per ounce you simply take the total dollar amount of the product and divide it by the number of ounces listed on the package.

  6. … whichever is the lowest price per ounce!

    I think your calculations are incorrect.
    7.50 divided by 256 =
    2.00 divided by 64 =

  14. It takes Pam 45 minutes to drive to work and 60 minutes to drive home from work. Write the ratio of the time Pam spends driving home from work to the time she spends driving to work in three different ways.

    Divide both 45 and 60 by three because "time she spends driving to work in THREE different ways" You could say divide it by 15 but you won't get credit and your teacher may think your cheating because how did you know to divide it by 15?

    So, 45 ÷ 3 = 15 and 60 ÷ 3 = 20

    Then simplify
    15 ÷ 5 = 3
    20 ÷ 5 = 4

    ANSWER: 3:4

    Ben needs to buy orange juice. He can buy 64 fl oz at the grocery store for $2.00, or he can buy 256 fl oz at the wholesale club for $7.50.

    a. Find the unit price for the grocery store orange juice. Round your answer to the nearest thousandth.
    b. Find the unit price for the wholesale club orange juice. Round your answer to the nearest thousandth.
    c. Where should Ben buy the orange juice if he wants the best deal? Explain.

    A: $0.031per ounce because, you divide 54 into 2. 2 ÷ 64 = 0.031

    B: %0.029 per ounce because, you divide 256 into 7.5 . 7.5 ÷ 256 = 0.029

    C: Ben should buy his orange juice from wholesale because 0.029 < 0.031

    Convert the map scale to a unit rate. How many inches represent one mile? Show your work. Interpret the meaning of the unit rate.
    3/10 in = 7/8 mi

    (3/10) in = (7/8) mi

    1 in = 7/8 mi ÷ 3/10

    = 7/8 x 10/3 = 70/24

    1 in = 70/24 mi
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------DISCLAIMER: I do not know if these are COMPLETELY RIGHT, I just did this if you need a start on how to solve the problem, after you can solve the problem your way. Then compare mine with yours and make your final answer! I hope you rock that test! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

  15. I tried my best to explain this as understandable as I could! Something that will help you with your math is writing NOTES. If you don't write notes you could forgot what you learned the next day (。╯︵╰。), and that would be terrible! So I advise you to write notes from your lessons, and when I mean it will help you IT WILL, the work is worth it! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day. Ciao! (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡
