Q:
# At one farmer's market, bananas cost $0.80 per pound. At another farmer's market, bananas are sold in 5-pound bags for $4.50 per bag. Which explains how to find the better buy?

Accepted Solution

A:

Divide the second amount by five to find out how much it costs at the second farmers market to get 1 pound of bananas.

5/5=1

4.50/5=.9

.9>.8 so the first farmers market had a better deal.
