Mrs. Jones wishes to buy 72 ounces of canned beans for the least possible cost. Which of the following should she buy?

six 12-ounce cans at 39cents per can
seven 10-ounce cans at 34 cents per can
three 24-ounce cans at 79 cents per can
two 25-ounce cans at 62 cents per can

Hint for number 1 -- how much is 8% of 75?

Number 2 (about the scow) --
28 / 3 = 9 1/3
1/3 of an hour is 20 minutes (1/3 of 60).

Number 3 --
1. 40 x \$8.60 = wages for regular work week.
2. 1 1/2 x \$8.60 = \$12.90 (hourly wage for overtime)
3. 8 x \$12.90 = overtime wages for 8 hours.
4. Add the answer you got from the first tep to the answer you got from the 3rd step.

Number 4 -- Since 24 is twice 12, wouldn't the taller pole's shadow be twice as long?
