A sugar-free powered drink mix sells for $2.99 per can. Each can of the mix contains 50.2 g of powder, which, when added to water, will make 8 quarts of drink. What is the cost of the powdered drink mix in dollars/lb? (454 g = 1 lb)
Cost of 1 can = $2.99
Amount of drink mix in a can = 50.2 gm
Cost of drink mix per gram = $2.99/50.2 gm = 59.6 cents/gm.
One lb = 454 gm
Cost of 454 gm drink mix = 454 gm x 59.6 cents/gm = $27.06/lb
Hope this helps.
