Question #13985

Heads of lettuce that are normally priced at $0.78 each are now being offered for a special price of 3 for $2. If Mr. Graboski wants to buy 6 heads of lettuce, how much will he save if he buys them at the sale price instead of the regular price?

Expert's answer

If Mr. Graboski buys 6 heads of lettuce at the regular price,

he pays 6 *

0.78 = 4.68$.

But if a special price is proposed, he pays $2 for each 3

heads,

so he spends 2 * 2 = 4$ as he needs 6 heads.

So, Mr. Graboski saves

4.68 - 4 = 0.68$.

he pays 6 *

0.78 = 4.68$.

But if a special price is proposed, he pays $2 for each 3

heads,

so he spends 2 * 2 = 4$ as he needs 6 heads.

So, Mr. Graboski saves

4.68 - 4 = 0.68$.
