Problem A

Better Deal?

From a candy machine, I can buy \(8\) candies for \(25\) cents. Alternatively, I can buy \(64\) candies in a package for \(2\) dollars and \(20\) cents.

If I want to buy 128 candies for my class, how should I buy the candies in order to spend the least amount of money?

Note: \(1\) dollar is equal to \(100\) cents.
