    Default Math Genius NEEDED (or a 3rd grader works!)

    before i ask this very BASIC math question i need to add a little something. i am NOT DUMB! i do have a 4.0 in college. but i have severe dyslexia and math is my worst. i have actually had comatose panic attacks trying to do math and even speaking about numbers gives me an anxiety attack!!! (how did i get a 4.0...for people with LD's u get an IEP and i was able to take the equivalent classes in WORD vs. NUMBERS)

    so trying to get my husband one of his gifts (he's harder to buy for than a woman) he LOVES coffee however and last year i was able to find him Cuban coffee which he had been wanting to try and fell in love with but that site has closed. so i found it 2 other places and need to know which is the best deal (where the math comes in)

    i have 2 choices. 2 bags 14 oz each for 26.99 (total) or 1 bag .75 lb for 11.99 each X 2.

    also, if anyone knows cuban coffee and knows of better choices this is Kana (with a squiggle of the N) havana blend...whole bean

    i know that the average 10 year old can do this in minutes...that is why i'm asking i don't want to spend days throwing things LOL

    guess I'm a tad late

    With my math, the first one is a better deal, but just slightly.

    Offer 1:
    2 bags of 14oz coffee = 28 oz total. $26.99/28 = $0.96 an oz of coffee

    Offer 2:
    (a pound is equal to 16 ounces...so .75lbs is equal to 12 ounces)

    2 bags of 12oz coffee = 24 oz total. $11.99 x 2 = $23.98. $23.98/24 = $0.99 an oz of coffee.


    As for the blend, I don't drink coffee, so am no help there, lol!

    Exactly. I did the math before I looked at the response.

    Awww, no need to feel less smart! We all have our specialties. It just so happens that my OCD symptoms manifest numerically (I spend all day long counting, double counting, create numerical word problems with numbers, etc), so questions like this are right up my alley.

    Now, if you had asked a history or science question? I'd have politely closed the thread and moved right along, lol!
