The 5-yard price is a better deal.

1 yard cost 0.49 so the unit cost is 0.49 per yard. 3 yards cost 1.46 so the unit cost is 1.46/3 = 0.4866.. per yard So the second has the lower unit price.

First we need to figure out how far it is around the box. Since it is a hexagonal box, we have 6 sides. Each side is 4 inches long, so it is 6*4 = 24 inches around the box. Then, we need to figure out how many inches are in a yard. One yards is 3 feet, and 1 foot is 12 inches, so we have 3 (feet/yard) * 12 (inches/foot) = 36 inches. Since the box is 24 inches around, if she wraps the 36 inch (1 yard) ribbon around the box, she will have 36 - 24 = 12 inches left for the bow, but she needs 14, so no, it is not long enough.
