The table shows the prices of teaching supplies from three different companies. A teacher needs 5 bumper packs and 25 individual worksheets. Which company gives the best deal?

Answer: C: Company C. Five bumper packs from Company A cost £12.50; 25 worksheets cost £5, making £17.50. Five bumper packs from Company B cost £11, and 25 x £0.25 = 6.25. That makes £17.25. Five bumper packs from Company C cost £14, and 25 x £0.10 = £2.50, making £16.50. Company C is cheapest.
