It depends on how many cakes did you eat before i sell them.

 more seriously the price you sell an item and what it is worth are two different things. I can decide to sell my car for 1 dollar. It still worth lot more than that.

Depends on how much people are willing to pay for it.

value and worth are not the same thing.

They are valued at .62 each, but they could have a different Worth, as worth is subjective.

24 / 15 = 1.60 (wrong)

15 / 24 = 0.625 = 62.5p

Not sure if this is a serious question  :s. Buying bulk often gives you a discount though, a single cake could be more expensive, not sure if that factors into your question though.

"it" refers to the box of cakes, and you are selling the box, so not enough data.  :p

Am I to assume that I'm selling the box with the cakes, or some mysterious "it" item that isn't described in the question?

No idea how much the box, or the cakes, or the mysterious "it" is worth.  I couldn't accurately establish their value from the information given, let alone their retail worth.  E.g. if the cakes or box are decorated with diamonds then their worth is increased far beyond the item sale price given.

Assuming "it" is the box containing cakes, am I selling the box containing cakes as a single item or is each cake within the box a single item for sale?
