usage of à

Hi! I don't quite understand the usage of à in the examples: Il le vend 3 € la livre; and Le pâté se vend à 1,25 € les 100 grammes. The verb is same, constraction is same. What's the difference? Can i use both? Thanks!

Hi Dina, 

In fact , in the case of the verb 'se vendre' you can say both -

'Le pâté se vend (à) .....les 100g' , with or without the à which is idiomatic...

You could also say -

'Les pommes sont à ....... le kilo aujourd'hui' = The apples are ..... per kilo today 

But well spotted!
