Understanding Prices
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     When you are shopping, the smallest item usually has the lowest price. But is this the best deal? Sometimes the item with the lowest price isn't always the cheapest in the end.
 
2     Every item in a store has a price. Sometimes, the price is on the item. More often it is on the shelf beneath the item. There are also scanners that can tell you the price of an item. These are usually found in different places throughout the store.
 
3     As you look at a price tag on a shelf, there are usually a couple of numbers on it. The number to the right is the price for the item. In the upper left corner there is usually another price. This price tells you how much you are paying per a certain unit, like a pound or a gallon.
 
4     Take a bag of chips, for example. A twelve ounce bag may cost two dollars. If you look at the upper left of the tag, it will tell you that a pound of the chips cost about two dollars and sixty-seven cents.
 
5     Now look at a twenty ounce bag of chips. It may cost you two dollars and ninety nine cents. That is more expensive. But if you look at the tag, it tells you that you are only paying two dollars and thirty-nine cents a pound. So in the long run, the bigger bag of chips is actually cheaper.
