Question 1 of 10

You can buy loose tomatoes for 2.75 zeds/kg, or by the box for 22 zeds/10kg. Which is the better deal?

  1. 22 zeds for 10kg box of tomatoes
  2. 2.75 zeds/kg

It is 2.75 zeds/kg for loose tomatoes but only 2.2 zeds/kg for boxed tomatoes; because 10kg of loose tomatoes would cost 27.50 zeds; you get more tomato for each zed you spend when buying the box.
