Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we want to know the cost per ounce for item A, then we use division. see "cost per ounce" per here essentially means division. so the cost is $189 or 189 cents and the # ounces we have is 20. > there fore it is 189 cents / 20 ounces > which would mean that 189/20 = x, where x = 9.45 cents or $0.0945. so we can check by seeing how much 20 ounces of item A would cost at the price of $0.0945 per ounce

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.020 = 2*10 > 2*0.0945 = 0.189. and (.189) * 10 = 1.89
