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 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
