Food Mart sells more pecans for less money, so it is cheaper.

The actual costs are:

Food Depart: 7.80 / 20 = 0.39 /ounce

Food Mart: 7.15 /32.5 = 0.22 / ounce

You need to compare the rates for each store. Take dollars per ounce (dollars divided by ounces). The lower number is less expensive, and the better deal. You could also take ounces per dollar (ounces divided by price), which will tell you how many ounces that a dollar will buy. In that case, the higher number is better, since you can get more ounces for the same amount of money. Either method will get the right answer for you.
