### QUESTION 1 of 10

Sometimes when we go shopping we are faced with all sorts of "Special Offers" such as

2 for £5

3 for £9

To work out the special offer that gives the better value, we must work out the unit price (i.e. the price for one item).

We do this by dividing.

2 for £5 means that each item costs £5 ÷ 2 = £2.50

3 for £9 means that each item cost £9 ÷ 3 = £3

The cheapest or the better value offer is therefore 2 for £5
