    Seems to relate to revenue formula, which is 4.5x. answer is $4.50. Explanation is the important factor here.

    Total revenue is given by the formula, R = P * Q, where R is total revenue, P is price of good and Q is quantity of good sold. So comparing the equation, R = P * Q with the given R = 4.5 x, where x is the quantity of the yogurt sold. x is equivalent to Q, thus 4.5 is the selling price of the yogurt. Hope this explanation is good enough.

    @tiaph is correct. They threw the cost formula in just to throw you off, it is an easier question than it looks.
