Expressing Prices
Newspaper ads for food stores often report prices in both dollars and cents.
To compare prices we must be able to express prices in both cents and dollars.
Express $0.45 in cents. Express 89¢ in dollars.
$0.45 45¢ 89¢ $0.89
Some prices are quoted in fractions of a cent, such as $1.026. To express this
amount in cents, move the decimal point two places to the right.
$1.026 102.6¢
Directions Express these prices in dollars and cents. It is important to use
the correct symbol in the price.

Reading Prices
It is not unusual to see food prices written without the dollar sign, $, or the
cents sign, ¢. Most of the time it is easy to understand what the price is.
A) 56¢ B) $0.56 C) .56 All three prices mean fifty-six cents.
However, every so often a mistake is made and a price is listed incorrectly.
In the following list, which price is not the same value as the other three?
A) 149¢ B) $1.49 C) $149 D) 1
49
E) 1.49
Price C is not the same. Price C represents one hundred and forty-nine dollars.
Prices A, B, D and E all represent one hundred forty-nine cents.
Directions Write the letter of the price that is not equal to the other three.

Reading Utility Meters
ABCD
681 1
Begin with dial A. Read the number that the pointer has just passed.
Then read dial B. If the pointer is between numbers take the lower number.
Even though the number appears to be exactly on a number, read the next
lower number–unless the pointer to its right has passed zero. Dials C and D
are read in the same way as dial B.
The dials here read 6811.
Directions Record the readings on these sample utility meters.
