If a 56 pound bushel of corn sold for 10 cents how much was each pound of corn worth?

Apr 8th, 2015

price of one pound= 10/56=0.178

approximately, 0.18 cents

Apr 8th, 2015

Can't be .18 cents or is it .18 or 1 cent since 56 bushels are .10 of a dollar

Apr 8th, 2015

it is correct that way, 0.18 cents= 1/5th of a cent.

imagine if it was 20 oranges sold for 25 dollars, how much is one orange?

answer would be, 25/20=1.25 dollars
