Problem 8 :

In a store, six shirts are sold for \$25.50. If you buy 4 shirts, how much do you have to pay ? Worksheet on Unit Price - Solutions

Problem 1 :

At a candy store you could get 3 giant lollipops for \$4.89. How much would it cost to buy 6 lollipops ?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 3 giant lollipops is \$4.89

Then, the cost of 1 giant lollipop is

=  4.89 / 3

=  \$1.63

The cost of 6 giant lollipops is

=  6 ⋅ 1.63

=  \$9.78

Hence,  it would cost \$9.78 to buy 6 lollipops.

Problem 2 :

A pet store was selling mice 6 for \$7.02. If they ended up selling 7 mice, how much money would they have earned ?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 6 mice is \$7.02

Then, the cost of 1 mouse is

=  7.02 / 6

=  \$1.17

The cost of 7 mice is

=  7 ⋅ 1.17

=  \$8.19

Hence, if they ended up selling 7 mice, they would have earned \$8.19

Problem 3

At the produce store you can buy 2 bags of bananas for \$12.46. How much would it cost if you were to buy 6 bags ?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 2 bags of bananas is \$12.46

Then, the cost of 1 bag of bananas is

=  12.46 / 2

=  \$6.23

The cost of 6 bags of bananas is

=  6 ⋅ 6.23

=  \$37.38

Hence, if we were to buy 6 bags of bananas, it would cost \$37.38

Problem 4 :

At the store Brand A potato chips were \$11.92 for 4 bags. Brand B potato chips were \$17.34 for 6 bags. Which brand has the cheaper price ?

Solution :

 Brand ACost of 1 bag  is=  11.92 / 4=  \$2.98 Brand BCost of 1 bag  is=  17.34 / 6=  \$2.89

2.98 > 2.89

Comparing the unit prices, brand B has the cheaper price.

Problem 5 :

A supermarket had bags of red grapes for \$13.00 for 5. The also had bags of green grapes priced at \$5.08 for 2. Which type of grape is most expensive ?

Solution :

 Red GrapesCost of 1 bag is=  13.00 / 5=  \$2.60 Green GrapesCost of 1 bag is=  5.08 / 2=  \$2.54

2.60 > 2.54

Comparing the unit prices, reg grape is most expensive.

Problem 6 :

A store had 5 packs of paper for \$9.25. How much would it cost, if you were to buy 4 packs ?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 5 packs of paper is \$9.25

Then, the cost of 1 pack of paper is

=  9.25 / 5

=  \$1.85

The cost of 4 packs of paper is

=  4 ⋅ 1.85

=  \$7.40

Hence, if we were to buy 4 packs of paper, it would cost \$7.40

Problem 7 :

Four gallons of gasoline cost \$16.80. If you buy 5 gallons of gasoline, how much do you have to pay ?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 4 gallons of gasoline is \$16.80

Then, the cost of 1 gallon of gasoline is

=  16.80 / 4

=  \$4.20

The cost of 5 gallons of gasoline is

=  5 ⋅ 4.20

.=  \$21.00

Hence, if we buy 5 gallons of gasoline, we have to pay \$21.00

Problem 8 :

In a store, six shirts are sold for \$25.50. If you buy 4 shirts, how much do you have to pay ?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 6 shirts is \$25.50

Then, the cost of 1 shirt is

=  25.50 / 6

=  \$4.25

The cost of 4 shirts is

=  4 ⋅ 4.25

.=  \$17.00

Hence, if we buy 4 shirts, we have to pay \$17.00 After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood how to solve problems using unit rates.
