Math Focus: Calculus/ODEs
We can look at the ratios:

$\displaystyle \frac{40}{27}\approx1.48$

$\displaystyle \frac{45}{30}=1.5$

So the 45% bottle is the better deal with regards to alcohol to dollar.

750 ml at 45% contains (750)(0.45)= 337.5 ml of alcohol. At $30.00 that is 3000/337.5= 8.89 cents per ml

750 ml at 40% contains (750)(0.40)= 300 ml of alcohol. At $27.00 that is 2700/300= 9 cents per ml.

Is that really the basis of your decision which to buy?
