Stuck on this question - 200g of meat costs 80p. Find the cost of 1 and a half kgs.

Answers
Well 1kg=1000g and 1.5kg = 1500g so we need to find out how many times 200g goes into 1500g which is 1500/200 =7. 5 We then multiply this by 80p - 7.5x80 = 600p = £6

well,1.5 kg is 1500g so you can halve 80p and 200g into 40p and 100g. Then you can multiply 40p with 15 which gives you the answer- £6.
