ZX Renew cases...

Re: How Many Units in the 1st Cased Boxed Run?

So following on from there, if I have 3 apples in one hand and two oranges in the other with a combined cost of £3.52 and a split cost of 35/65 to the apples how much cheese could I shoplift if I wore my big clown pants and triple extension cowboy hat?
