# Medicament

Same type of medicament produces a number of manufacturers in a variety of packages with different content of active substance.

Pack 1: includes 60 pills of 600 mg of active substance per pack cost 9 Eur.
Pack 2: includes 150 pills of 500 mg of active substance per pack cost 28.125 Eur.

Which is the more cost effective medicament (type 1 or 2)?

Correct result:

x =  1

#### Solution:

$x_1 = \dfrac{ 60 \cdot 600 }{ 9 } = 4000\ mg/Eur \ \\ x_2 = \dfrac{ 150 \cdot 500 }{ 28.125 } = 2666.67\ mg/Eur \ \\ \ \\ x_1 > x_2$
