Answer:

Step-by-step explanation:

The cereals are sold in boxes of two different sizes.

The price of the 8-ounce box is $2.48. It means that the cost per ounce of cereal in the 8-ounce box is

2.48/8 = $0.31 per ounce

The price of the 14-ounce box is $3.36. It means that the cost per ounce of cereal in the 8-ounce box is

3.36/14 = $0.24 per ounce

Therefore, the cost per ounce of cereal in the 8-ounce box is greater than the cost per ounce of cereal in the 14-ounce box by

0.31 – 0.24 = $0.07
