Year 5 Maths Challenge

Challenge yourself and solve one or more of the following challenges!
Rebecca, Peter and Mohamed all buy the same food items when doing their shopping. Although you would think they all pay the same amounts for the items, you are quite mistaken! Rebecca will only shop in Tesco, Peter loves the amazing discounts Asda has to offer and Mohamed is a big Morrison’s fanatic! All items cost the same in each of the three shops when a discount has not been applied. Robinson’s fruit squash costs £1.67 in Tesco and Morrisons this week however Asda currently has 23p off this original price. Walkers multi pack of crisps costs £3.43 in Asda and Morrisons this week however Tesco currently has 72p off this original price. Bread costs £0.98 in Asda and Tescos this week however Morrisons has an offer for 2 for £1.50 so Mohamed bought two loaves! 1kg of Vegetables in Tescos this week came to £4.60, 1kg of Vegetables in Asda this week came to £3.75 and 1kg of vegetables in Morrisons was 3/4 of the price of Tesco.
Whose shopping was the cheapest and WHY?
Rosie and Imaan both shop at Tesco and buy the following items.
Milkshake £1.98
Chocolate £0.89
Potatoes £3.45
Apples £2.38
