# A particular brand of toilet p

A particular brand of toilet paper is offered at two stores in different kinds of packaging. To practice using rates, for each package determine both the number of sheets per dollar and the cost in dollars per sheet. Then determine which package is the better buy.

Sams Club sells a 36-pack of the toilet paper with 248 sheets per roll for \$26.99

Walmart sells the toilet paper for \$5.99 in an 8-pack with 350 sheets per roll

The Sam’s Club package:

a. contains  sheets of toilet paper altogether.
Hint: This is a perfect place for dimensional analysis. Rolls x

 Sheets Roll

= Sheets!

b. has  sheets per dollar (rounded to the nearest whole sheet)
Hint: Remember that “per” indicates division. You know how many sheets are in the package. You also know how much the package costs. Use those two pieces of information together to answer this question.

c. costs \$  per sheet (rounded to three decimal places…this is necessary because two decimal places is too few to show a difference compared to the WalMart package).
Hint: This question is the reverse of part b which asked for sheets per dollar. Now you need dollars per sheet. You need the same pieces of information connected in a different way.

The Wal-Mart package:

a. contains  sheets of toilet paper altogether.

b. has  sheets per dollar (rounded to the nearest whole sheet)
Hint: The sheet count you just calculated and the price of the package are important here!

c. costs \$  per sheet (rounded to three decimal places)

Which of the following statements correctly identifies both which store offers the better buy and why?>

Walmart’s package is the better buy because it costs less per sheet (which also means that you get more sheets per dollar).Sam’s Club’s package is the better buy because it costs less per sheet (which also means that you get more sheets per dollar).
