After a trip to a local pharmacy, and a sticker shock from one of the prescribed medications (one that treats pimples), I decided to cool myself with bit with arithmetic. Retail price for the medication (30x 115mg tablets of Solodyn) is $700.99 Current price of gold is $1134 per ounce Question : What is more expensive, Gold, or medication for treating pimples? Solution : $1134 x 1 ounce/31.10 grams = $36.46 is the price per gram of Gold $700.99/(30*.115) =$203.18 is the price per gram of Solodyn Conclusion : Solodin is more than 5 times more expensive! Observation: No point of Gold prospecting these days. Just find a deposit of Solodyn!
