2 Answer

1. User Answers keshady
$14×3=$42 price per package of 10
25×$2=$50 individual can cost
30×$2=$60, cost of cans individually bought
so the third problem would be the correct answer because it asks how much for each can

Answer:
$1.4
Stepbystep explanation:
Given, Price of a package of 10 cans = $14
and, Price of an individual can = $2
Now, if I have to purchase at least 25 cans their are two possible ways:
 Purchasing 2 packages of the can and then purchase rest individual cans. Thus, if I have to purchase 25 cans it costs: 14 × 2 + 5 × 2 = $38.
 Purchasing 3 packages of cans. It will cost me: 3 × 14 = $42. But it will give me an extra 5 cans.
Further, if I decided to buy 3 packages of 10 cans it will cost me $42 and I will pay $1.4 for each can.
