5 gallon bucket of paint for $97.45 Or a 1 gallon bucket of paint for 21.95. Which is the better buy ?

PLEASE HELP!

Divide 97.45 by 5 if the number is smaller that 21.95 then then 5 gallon bucket would be the better deal. If not then the one gallon bucket would be a better deal.

Actually if you only need one gallon of paint the one gallon is better because 4 gallons would go to waste.

Divide $97.45 by 5... if the resulting number is greater than $21.95, the single gallon is the better price. If not, the 5 gallon bucket is less expensive.

$97.45 / 5 gallons is $19.49 a gallon. A single gallon is $ 21.95 a gallon.So the 5 gallon bucket is cheaper.
