600 grams at 20% off usual price of £5.00     

-- find 20% off the usual price of £5.00:  0.20 x £5.00  =  £1.00   --->   £5.00 - £1.00  =  £4.00 (final cost)

-- 600 grams for £4.00  =  600 grams / £4.00  =  150 grams for £1.00

 

600 grams + 30% for £5.00

-- find 30% of 600 grams:  0.30 x 600 grams  =  180 grams   --->   600 grams + 100 grams  =  700 grams (final amount)

-- 700 grams for £5.00  =  700 grams / £5.00  =  140 grams for £1.00

 

Which is the better price?
