  • Answer:

    Company A = $13

    Company B = $12.73

    Company B

    Step-by-step 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
