Elles sont à 2,35€ le kilo.

I noticed in one of the writing tests "They cost..." one translation is given as "Elles sont à..." or "they are at..." Is the à after être required when talking about prices and measures in French, or is it optional? ~Thanks for your help.

Bonjour Andy ! Yes, in that case, you would need to use "être à" + price: "Cette chemise est à 45 euros." However this doesn't apply to measures, for which you simply use the verb "mesurer": "Cette table mesure deux mètres." I hope that's helpful! Bonne Année!
