# A car boy in California purchased 6onces of silver for 3000 euro. what is the unit ratio of euro/ounce of silver? If the exchange rate is l:25 $=euro, what is the ratio equivalant to in $/pound of gold.

Ratio= costeuro/ounce=3000/6

Ratio= costeuro/ounce*16ounces/lb *dollars/euro

=3000/6*16*1.25 dollars/lb

Hmmm. I think I misread the ratio of dollars to euro.

Ratio= costeuro/ounce=3000/6

Ratio= costeuro/ounce*16ounces/lb *dollars/euro

=3000/6*16*1 /25 dollars/ lb

check my thinking

I am not getting what you are saying, please put in word form.

## To find the unit ratio of euro/ounce of silver, you need to divide the cost in euro by the number of ounces. In this case, the car boy purchased 6 ounces of silver for 3000 euro, so the unit ratio is:

Ratio = cost in euro / ounces of silver = 3000 / 6

To convert this ratio to dollars/pound of gold, you need to know the exchange rate between dollars and euro. Let's assume the exchange rate is 1 dollar = 0.25 euro. To convert euro to dollars, you multiply the euro amount by the exchange rate. So the ratio in dollars/pound of gold would be:

Ratio in dollars/pound = (cost in euro / ounce) * (16 ounces / pound) * (exchange rate: dollars/euro)

If the exchange rate is indeed 1 dollar = 0.25 euro, then the ratio would be:

Ratio in dollars/pound = (3000 / 6) * (16 / 1) * (1 / 0.25)

Please note that I am assuming the exchange rate of 1 dollar = 0.25 euro based on your initial mention of l:25 $=euro. If the exchange rate is different, you would need to adjust the calculation accordingly.
