To find:
Unit price for given rates of napkins and decide which the better buy is.
The first rate of packet of napkins is 100 for $0.59. In this case, the number of units is 100. ### Answer & Explanation svartmaleJ Skilled2021-08-17Added 92 answers So, to find the unit price, we divide the given price by the number of napkins. In fractional form, Let's divide 0.59 by $100:0.59÷100=0.0059$ Rounding 0.0059 to 3 decimal places, we get 0.006. Thus, unit price is . The above unit price can be written as$0.006/napkin which is read as $0.006 per napkin. The second rate of packet of napkins is 180 for$0.93.
In this case, the number of units is 180.
So, to find the unit price, we divide the given price by the number of napkins.
In fractional form,
Let's divide 0.93 by $180:0.93÷180=0.00516\dots \approx 0.005$(rounding to 3 decimal places),
Thus, unit price is .
The above unit price can be written as $0.005/napkin which is read as$0.005 per napkin.
Since the package of 180 has a cheaper price per napkin, it is the better buy.
FInal solution:
The unit price of 100 for $0.59=\frac{0.006}{napkin}$
The unit price of 180 for $0.93=\frac{0.005}{napkin}$
The package 180 napkins are a better buy.
