Unit price for Brand A = $1.97/25 = $0.08 for each fork
Unit price for Brand B = $2.98/48 = $0.06 for each fork
The better buy is Brand B

You have the total cost ($1.97) for 25 forks. Divide to get the price for 1 fork:
1.97/25 = 0.0788 (or 7.88¢). Rounding that's about 8¢ per fork.
Do the same calculation for the other brand. Pick the brand with the lower cost per fork.
P.S. You can estimate this pretty quickly in your head. It's about $2 for 25 forks and about $3 for about 50 forks. If we bought two batches of the first we would spend $4 for 50 forks which gives you an idea of which one is a better deal.
