What formula should I use

Given a budget of \$1,000, a particular brand of knickers sells in packs
of 5 for \$10, how many knickers can each of ten persons receive if it
is shared equally?

=(Dollars/Unit_cost)*Unit_Qty/People

Unit cost = \$10
Unit Qty = 5 pairs

A1: \$1000 (budget)
A2: 10 (total people)
A3: \$10 (cost per pack)
A4: 5 (knickers per pack)

=(A1/A2/A3)*A4

=50 knickers per person
