Answer:
Rachel bought 6 pounds of coffee.
Stepbystep explanation:
First, do $70$25.36, because that will give you the total amount of money she spent on coffee.
$70$25.36= $44.64.
Rachel spent $44.64 on coffee.
Next, you know that every pound of coffee costs $7.44.
So, $7.44x = $44.64
x= the number of pounds of coffee Rachel purchased.
So, we have to now isolate x.
$7.44x / $7.44 = $44.64 / $7.44
x= 6
Therefore, Rachel purchased 6 pounds of coffee.
