## Answers ( )

The smaller unit rate is a better buy

Step-by-step explanation:

Given

Larger unit rates and smaller unit rates

Required

Determine which is a better buy

To answer this, I’ll use the following assumptions.

If store A and store B sell the same product at $2/ unit and$3/ per unit respectively.

At store A (with $2/unit), you will get 50 of that product at 50 * 2 =$100

At store B (with $3/unit), you will get 50 of that product at 50 * 2 =$150

Meaning that, you will spend more at the store with the larger unit rate (and you don’t want that, do you?)

Hence, the smaller unit rate is a better buy.
