## Comparison Shopping!

### What is comparison shopping?

• Shopping for bargains by comparing the prices of similar items or brands or comparing the prices at different stores.

• To get a bargain, or get the best value, you must compare not only price, but quality as well.

### Unit pricing will help with comparison shopping.What is unit pricing?

• Unit pricing is figuring the price per unit—such as

• per ounce

• per pound

• per individual item (such as an egg that comes in a carton of a dozen, or one soda that comes in a 12 pack)

### Let’s try unit pricing! (Yay!)(You may use a calculator)

Which is the better bargain?

• 2 pounds of bananas for \$1.00

• OR

• 3 pounds of bananas for \$2.00?

To find the answer, divide the cost by the amount to find the price per unit:

### Which is the better deal/bargain?

• \$1.00 divided by 2  = .50 per Pound

• \$2.00 divided by 3  = .67 per Pound
