Man, I don't even know how to describe the scenario :roll:

Well, suppose 5 people want to buy some stuff. If you buy more than 100 of then, then the unit price will be much cheaper.

What do you say if you could take no matter how many left there to reach 100, after all other made their decision?

I don't know whether I am clear or not. Anyway, if they are taking 80 altogether, then I'll take 20. Similarly if they take 70, i'll take 30.

So, I'd like to express this with one neat sentence. How should I phrase it?

thanks a lot! :D

The expression is:
  • The unit price is less (each item is cheaper) if you buy in bulk.

What do you say if you could take no matter how many left there to reach 100, after all other made their decision?

Perhaps:
  • There are a total of 100 units. I will buy the remaining items out of the 100 after the others have made their purchases.

What do you think?

hum, that's exactly what I meant:).
I just thought perhaps you guys use this in your life, too, and have some "slang" way of saying it.

Then, i guess i'll take RonBee's suggestion:).

thanks a lot!
