Maria purchased 3 pounds of candy X for $7.98 and 5 pounds of candy Y for $10.95.
Quantity A |
Quantity B |
The price Maria paid per pound for candy X |
The price Maria paid per pound for candy Y |
A)The quantity in Column A is greater.
B)The quantity in Column B is greater.
C)The two quantities are equal.
D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
Maria purchased 3 pounds of candy X for $ 7.98
So 1 pound of candy X cost = \(\frac{7.98}{3}\) \(= \frac{8}{3} = 2.6\)
Maria purchased 5 pounds of candy Y for $ 10.95
So 1 pound of candy 1 cost = \(\frac{10.95}{5}\) \(= \frac{11}{5}= 2.5\)
Therefore QTY A > QTY B
