2 Answer

  • 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

  • Answer:

    $8.58‬
