Question: Logan buys a box of 64 colored pencils for $24.00 and a box of 36 crayons for $12.60. Which costs more, a single colored pencil or a single crayon?
Answer: a single colored pencil
Solution: To find the price of each pencil, we divide the total cost of all the pencils by the number of pencils. Each pencil is worth $24.00 ÷ 64 = 37½¢. Let’s compare to the price of a crayon, which is $12.60 ÷ 36 = 35¢. Since 37½¢ > 35¢, the value of a colored pencil is greater than the value of a crayon.
