Example Problems :

1) Three caps cost  $0.30. How much does one cap of the same price cost?

       3 caps  cost   $0.30

      So,  1 cap costs   30 ÷ 3 cents 

                                  = 10 ¢   

                                           =  $ 0.1

2) Five burgers cost 1 dollar. How much does 1 burger of the same price cost?

        5 burgers  cost   $1.00

        So, 1 burger costs    1.0 ÷ 5 dollars

                                   =    100 ÷ 5 cents                                    

                                   =  20 ¢

                                             =  $ 0.2

3) If six pizzas cost  $ 2.50, how much do three pizzas cost?

       6 pizzas  cost  $ 2.50

         So, 3 pizzas  cost   2.50 ÷ 2 dollars

                                     = $ 1.25
