At the local grocer, the prices for apples are the following: 9 ounces for $1.89 or 1 pound for $2.49. How much will you save per pound, by buying the least expensive? Round to the nearest cent.

I'd equalize the amount in the "9 ounces per" group to be equal to the pound.

Or you could just bring the pound group down to 9 ounces.

Or you could do \[\frac{ ounces }{ cost }\] type that into your calculator and get a decimal rate and then compare to see which one one is lower.
