8 bagels for 4.15 is a better deal.

Work Step by Step

In order to figure out which one of these options is a better deal, we have to divide the price by the number of bagels to find out the price per bagel. Thus, we obtain: 3.29/6=.5483 dollars per bagel 4.15/8=.51875 dollars per bagel The 8 bagels have a lower price per bagel, so we know that buying the pack containing 8 bagels is a better deal.
