## To answer the first question, "What is the cost of a dozen dozen apples at half a dozen dimes a dozen?", we can break it down like this:

- A dozen dozen apples means 12 x 12 = 144 apples.
- "Half a dozen dimes a dozen" means each dozen costs 6 x 10 cents = 60 cents.
- So, the cost of 144 apples at 60 cents per dozen is 144/12 x 60 cents = 12 x 60 cents = \$7.20.

Now, let's move on to the second question, "What is the cost of a half dozen dozen apples at dozen a half a dozen?"

- A half dozen dozen apples means 6 x 12 = 72 apples.
- "Dozen a half a dozen" means each dozen costs 12 x 0.5 = 6.
- So, the cost of 72 apples at 6 cents per dozen is 72/12 x 6 cents = 6 x 6 cents = 36 cents.

Comparing the two answers, we can see that the cost of a dozen dozen apples is \$7.20, while the cost of a half dozen dozen apples is 36 cents. Therefore, the dozen dozen apples at half a dozen dimes a dozen is more expensive than the half dozen dozen apples at dozen a half a dozen.
