If you divide $1.99 by 3, you will get a unit cost for the salt. Once you have that, you can multiply that by 16 to get the cost of 16 boxes.
$9.95 is the answer?
That isn't what I got. $1.99/3 is $.6633333333
or 66 and one third cents.
Multiply that by 16 and you get $10.61333333
which also leaves a fraction of 1/3 of a cent. Since you can't break up pennies, I would bump the answer up to $10.62.
Not quite the normal rounding rule, but again, you can't break a penny up so you'd most likely pay the next increment up.
