    Need a little help guys.

    Cardboard box cost £60 per 1000.

    Each box can fit in 64, 1 litre boxes.

    So how much does it cost for that 1 litre box to use 1/64 of the big box?

    Could you post a picture of the problem? As you've written it, it's a bit unclear.

    1. How much does one large cardboard box cost.

    You initially said 1000? Per 100 what?

    Sorry it should be 100.

    So a large box, it is made so you can store little containers.

    So one large box can hold 64 containers.

    So 100 cardboard boxes cost 60.

    50 cardboard boxes cost 30, 25 cost 15, etc...

    1 costs 60/100 = 6/10. Are you okay with that?

    Yeah great, so 6/10 into pence will equal 0.60p?

    So if the box was full 64 bottles would cost 60p.

    You want 1 bottle, so 60p/64.
