An ounce of gold sells at USD 620.
An ounce of platinum sells at USD 1220.
Why am I correct to say that platinum is 2.39 times more expensive than gold?
I am stumped because according to my book, both are measured in Troy ounces (31+ grams) rather than more common avoirdupois (28+ grams). So I must plead ignorance. Can you give us a hint?
BTW, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Of course DoF is right.
Anybody with access to Wikepedia or Google can check.
I was too lazy and now have to post this correction.
I actualy Googled to find the picture of Helen of Troy.
That is Helen of Troy? Looks just like this hooker I met one time in Europe..
