    UK: £ 22/25 kg  x (463 naira / £) = 407 naira/kg

    USA: $27/30 kg x (361 naira / $) = 325 naira/kg ⬅

    Thailand: £ 18/50 lb x (463 naira / £) x (2.204 lb/kg) = 367 naira/kg

    hint: note how the units cancel and combine to give you the desired units.

    Alhaji Bashiru got import license to import rice.

    Upon enquiries he found out that in UK a bag of rice which weighs 25 kg

    costs  £22 while in USA a bag of rice weights 30 kg and costs $27. 

    Which is cheaper?

    Upon further enquiries, he found out that

    a bag of rice in Thailand weighs 50 lb and costs £18. 

    Alhaji Bashiru wants to go for the cheapest one

    since all the rice are of the same quality.

    Please advise him.
