Answer

The price of one buffalo wing at Harry’s Grill is 0.65 dollars. The price of one buffalo wing at Margo’s Cookery is 0.7 dollars.

Work Step by Step

Harry’s Grill offers 12 buffalo wings for 7.80 dollars. To find the price of one buffalo wing, we divide 7.80 by 12. So, $\frac{7.80\ dollars}{12}$ = 0.65 dollars The price of one buffalo wing at Harry’s Grill is 0.65 dollars. Margo’s Cookery offers 15 wings for 10.50 dollars. To find the price of one wing, we divide 10.50 by 15. So, $\frac{10.50\ dollars}{15}$ = 0.7 dollars The price of one buffalo wing at Margo’s Cookery is 0.7 dollars.
