Answer:Store B

Step-by-step explanation:To figure out which store has the better deal, we need to figure out the price per unit. We can do this by dividing the price by the number of the shirts. Store A sells their t-shirts for 8.33 or 8 1/3 dollars per shirt, while Store B sells their shirts for 8 dollars a shirt. 8 < 8 1/3, therefore Store B has the better deal.

Answer:B.

Step-by-step explanation:If you do 3/25=5/x. You would get $41.6. Another way to show it is to divide 25/3 and 40/5, which would give us $8.3 and $8.
