6:35.88 = 1 pound:\$5.98 = 1:5.98

15:81.75 = 1 pound:\$5.45 = 1:5.45

Step-by-step explanation:

– To find this divide price given by pounds given.

– For example,

35.88/6 and 81.75/15

(Do the math and you should get the answers I got above.)

– Lastly, to do this question you need to be familiar with what a ration is. It is a 1:1 account. So in this situation, this means that for that 1 pound it will cost either \$5.98 or \$5.45 depending on what bag you choose. It is almost like simplifying fractions, but you are just trying to find the amount for 1 of that pound or item.
