Gobble ‘til you Wobble!

Today’s Task: Determine actual cost of recipes using unit pricing!!!


What is Unit Pricing?

The actual cost of the ingredients that you are going to USE in the recipe …

For instance

If the container holds 2 cups but you only need to use 1 cup of that ingredient

You would

Divide the cost of that item in half

If the container cost $2, you would have used $1 worth in your recipe


Additional Example

  • 1 Check the packaging to determine its size. Bags of sugar are sold by the pound, for example. If a 4 lb. bag of sugar costs $3.20, you can easily calculate its unit pricing.

  • 2 Divide $3.20 (the price of the sugar) by 4 (the unit, in pounds). The unit pricing is 80 cents per pound.

  • If there were 4 cups in a pound and you only needed 1 cup, the sugar would cost you 20 cents for that recipe
