If Beth bought grapes and apples at the grocery store, what was the cost of the grapes?

(1) The total cost of the grapes and apples was \$5.60.

(2) The ratio of the cost of grapes to apples was 3 to 1

I dont agree with the OA and OE...got this from PR CD...

do people at PR even read their own explainations?

I got E as well.

I took "cost of grapes" to mean the price of grapes.

A + G = 5.60

G/A = 3/1 ratio

say that G= .3 and A = .1

.3(15) = 4.50

.1 (11) = 1.10

= 5.60

Price of grapes = .3 and total cost of grapes = 4.50

You could plug in a ton more values which would give different numbers.

THE OA is C...
