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!
This question relates to:French lesson "Using le, la, les with weights and measures (definite articles)"

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!
Thanks Cecile, very helpful!
