If the full question is A convenience store sells two brands of orange juice. Brand A contains 8 fluid ounces and costs $1.28. Brand B contains 12 fluid ounces and costs $1.68. What is the difference in cost, in dollars, per fluid ounce between the two brands of juice? Show your work

Answer:  
________________________________________________________
"Brand B" costs 2 cents more per fluid ounce than "Brand A".   and:  
 
"Brand A" costs 2 cents less per fluid ounce than "Brand B" .
________________________________________________________
Explanation:
_________________________________________________
Start with "Brand A" :
_________________________________________________
 $ 1.28 / (8 fl. oz)  =  1.28 ÷ 8 = 4/5 =  $0.16 / fl. oz. ;

[ $0.16 per fluid ounce ] .
_________________________________________________
Now, "Brand B" :
_________________________________________________
$ 1.68 / (12 fl. oz.) = 7/50 = $0.14 / fl. oz.

[ $0.16 per fluid ounce] 
__________________________________________________

So, "Brand B" costs more, per fl. oz., than "Brand A".
__________________________________________________

"Brand B" costs: 16 cents per fl. oz.

"Brand A" costs: 14 cents per fl. oz.
_______________________________________________________

16 cents  − 14 cents = 2 cents .
_______________________________________________________
 So,

 "Brand B" costs 2 cents more per fluid ounce than "Brand A".  and:


 "Brand A" costs 2 cents less per fluid ounce than "Brand B" .

The _____ is the idea, image, or feeling associated with a word that is different from its actual meaning. A. denotation B. word choice C. connotation D. argument

The third alternative is correct (C).

Words can have more than one meaning, sometimes several, depending on the context in which they are used.

The denotative sense is also called the literal meaning of the word, that is, it has the original interpretation.

Example: The sun is hot.

The word sun was used in its literal sense, a star of the solar system.

The connotative, or figurative sense, occurs when the word presents different meanings, subject to different interpretations, depending on the phasic context in which it appears.

Example: You are my sun.

Here the word sun was employed with a connotative sense in an affectionate statement.
