Amos looked after the grade vines at the end of his grandfather's vegetable garden. When the grapes were ripe, Amos picked 15 kilograms of delicious grapes. His grandfather said he could put them in packets that held `1 1/2` kg of grapes each, and sell them for R6 each, or he could put the grapes in boxes which held 5 kg of grapes, and sell each box for R20. Amos wanted to make as much money as possible. Which method of selling is best?
1. How many packets would Amos need if he chose packets? 2. How many boxes would he need if he chose boxes? 3. Would he make more money by using the packets or the boxes, and if so, how much more would he make? Explain your answer.
