TASK...
The Parsons' Sam's Club Dilemma:
Mr. P and Dr. Parsons were at Sam's Club over fall break. The duo looked at two grocery items: peanut butter and canned chili with beans, which are good for your heart. What unit rate should be used to determine the better buy of the three? Explain how you know. Which of the three brands is the actaul best buy. Then create an argument that tells the Parsons which of the three they should buy based on the sizes and prices.
