4 kg of tomatoes at sh.25 per kg means

Sh.25 +  Sh.25 + Sh.25 + Sh.25 = 4kg X sh. 25 =  sh. 100

Each loaf of bread costs sh. 50 therefore 2 loaves will cost 2 X sh. 50 = sh. 100

½ kg of salt at sh. 20 per kg means

1 kg of salt costs sh. 20

½ kg of salt will cost sh. 10

4kg of sugar @ sh. 100 per kg means

Sh. 100 + Sh. 100 + Sh. 100 + Sh. 100 = 4 kg

∴ the total cost is sh. 100 X 4 kg = sh. 400

2 packets of wheat flour @ sh. 150 per 2-kg packet

2 packets x sh. 150 = sh. 300
