Answer:
Company A = $13
Company B = $12.73
Company B
Stepbystep explanation:
To determine the unit cost for each company, divide the price of chocolate by the number of pounds
Unit cost = price ÷ total pounds offered
Company A
$32.50 ÷ 2 1/2
$32.50 ÷ 5/2
$32.50 x 2/5 = $13
Company B
$35 ÷ 2 3/4
$35 ÷ 11/4
$35 X 4/11 = $12.73
$12.73 is less than $13. Company b has a lower price per pound
