## Description

We use ratios and proportions every day in our lives and especially when shopping to determine the best deal for an item we want to buy.

**During week 3**, demonstrate in your initial post how you used proportion to determine the best price for any item you bought in the last 2 weeks. This item can be a grocery item, clothes, etc.

For example, which deal is the best: 2 liters of milk for $3.80, or 1.5 liters of milk for $2.70?

In this case the "Unit" is 1 liter, and the Unit Prices are:

$3.80 / 2 liters = $1.90 per liter

$2.70 / 1.5 liters = $1.80 per liter
