    I'm doing a write up on an assignment for college and I need to figure out how much it costs daily to feed the hamster I did my plan on. The college gets 20kg bags which cost £17.64 and the hamster is fed 10g daily. How much does it work out as a daily cost to feed it?

    20 kg = 20000 grams
    20000g/(10g/day)= 2000 days
    17.64/2000 days = 0.00882/day or less than 1 penny per day.
