First, Thank you for the Welcome and Thanks in advance for all your help. I own a construction business and currently I am running volumetric concrete trucks (mix-on-site/plant on wheels). This is the scenario:
We consumed Sand A at a cost of $21 per Ton and recently we switched to Sand B at a cost of $18.77 per Ton. However, my workers began to notice that the same 26 Ton truck was bringing less of Sand B than he used to of Sand A. I weighed both sand types in a 16oz cup and noted that there was a difference indeed. The 16oz cup of Sand A, weighed 683.6 grams while the same 16oz of Sand B, weighed 717.6 grams. If Sand A costs $21 per Ton and Sand B costs $18.77, but Sand B weighs more, am I saving money by using Sand A or Sand B? What if Sand A costs $19 per Ton?
