Question

Nikki used the calculations shown to determine whether a carton of 12 eggs or a carton of 18 eggs was the better buy.

A carton of 12 eggs cost $2.39, and a carton of 18 eggs cost $3.39.

Unit price of the 12-egg carton = ($2.39)(12 eggs) = $28.68 per egg

Unit price of the 18-egg carton = ($3.39)(18 eggs) = $61.02 per egg

The 12-egg carton has the lower unit cost, so it is the better buy.

Answer:A

Step-by-step explanation:She is right, however her explanation is wrong.

In order to find the unit price, you need to divide the amount by the cost.

You will then see that 12 divided by 2.39 < 18 divided by 3.39.

The smaller unit price is obviously the better buy.
