In this question, we're trying to find out how much Jamal spent on apples.
We know that he bought 2 pounds of red apples and 3.2 pounds of green apples.
We also know that each pound of apples, no matter what kind it is, are $1.65 a pound.
In order to find the total cost of these apples, we would need to multiply the amount of pounds he has to the cost per pound.
Solve:
2 · 1.65 = 3.30
3.2 · 1.65 = 5.28
Add those numbers together:
5.28 + 3.30 = 8.58
This means that Jamal spent $8.58 on apples.
Answer:
$8.58
