Best Buy Squash
Loads of maths in here. First question: which one would you buy?
Here’s some more information:
The Tesco own brand is 750ml for ??1.03. There’s an offer of two for ??1.50. This squash is double strength. The Robinson squash is 1litre for ??1.45 and there’s a buy 2 get 2 free offer. The Ribena is ??2 for 1 litre. I think it’s important to state the assumptions made in calculating the ‘best buy’ here. For example, I assume the person isn’t bothered about the flavour or brand. I also assume that the person has plenty of storage and will get through whatever quantity is bought. What do you think of this as a Maths question? I hope it’s not contrived (genuine photo) and has the nice touch of combining:
