Economy of Scale

8 01 2017

I’ve spent the weekend in the city and become a connoisseur of ice-cream prices. These are the prices I’ve seen for 1 scoop or 2 scoops or 3 scoops respectively, at various places.



$6.90,$9.90,$11.90 in a tub

$7.90,$10.90,$12.40 in a cone at the above store



Being that I am a sweet tooth, I am fascinated with the range of pricing structures. A number of the above pricings are in close proximity. My dilemma is which store to patronise. I only ever have to decide between 2 scoops and 3 scoops. 

Then to add to the consternation, I note that a choc top at the theatre is $6. How do you figure that?
