QUESTION: How do you figure out the price per ounce (or other unit)?
IN otherwords, the math equation needed to figure it out! I've been looking all over the internet & I'm just not fingding it! All I'm finding is that we need to use it & we need to teach our kids it, but NONE that explain it! I use to know, but now can't remember! HELP! Thanks!

Here's an excerpt from an article I wrote about 7 years ago...hope it helps
An example: Cereal is sold different sizes. The 14ounce box is $2.60.
 The 20ounce box is $3.50.
 The 2pound (32ounce) box is $5.00
To figure the unit price, divide the price by the number of units (in this example, it's the number of ounces). The unit price for the 14ounce box is $.19 cents per ounce ($2.60/14).
 The unit price for the 20ounce box is $.18 cents per ounce ($3.50/20).
 The unit price for the 2pound box is $.16 cents per ounce (2 pounds = 32 ounces, $5.00/32).

Thank you Sara!
I couldn't remember the equation... & we'd been shopping more at Walmart (& they have the price figured out for you) for months b/c it was closer to us than anything else (except Sam's of course!) & since we've moved in Oct. we have at least 6 diff stores (incl. walmart supercenter & neighborhood store & a sam's! lol) & not all of them have the unit price!Waiting is teaching me to lean on Jesus that much harder!!!

I use the calculator on my cell phone: price divided by the number of ounces.
