A \(4\) ounce bottle of glue costs \($2.35\) . Then...

A \(\frac44\) ounce bottle of glue costs \(\frac{$2.35}{4}\) .

A \(1\) ounce bottle of glue costs \($0.59\) .

The price per ounce is $0.59 .

Think about this Splatmaster,

A pack of 9 sweatshirts cost $88.77 .

How much would it cost to buy a pack of 18 sweatshirts?

It would cost twice as much, right?

A pack of 9 * 2 sweatshirts costs $88.77 * 2 .

So..likewise...

A pack of 9 / 9 sweatshirts costs $88.77 / 9

A pack of 1 sweatshirts costs ... ? Can you finish it?

The price of 1 sweatshirt is the unit price.
