A cheese that costs c cents per ounce costs how many dollars per pound? (16 ounces = 1 pound and 100 cents = 1 dollar)

(A) 4c/25

(B) 25c/4

© 25/4c

(D) c/1,600

(E) 1,600c

So our goal is **dollar per pound** and we’re starting with **cents per ounce**.

lets convert cent into dollars first —> we are given 100 C = 1 dollar hence, 1/100 dollar = 1 cent — Eq 1

now lets convert ounce to pound --> we are given 16 O = 1 Pound hence 1/16 = 1 ounce ---- Eq 2

Now , all that is left is to plug in these values :

dollar per pound = cent x 1/100 / 1/16 pound = 4c/25
