Here tomatoes cost 1 pound. :) The answer is just 2.49*1.5=3.735
Need to convert the ounces to pounds. 8 oz = 0.5 lb so the total weight bought is 2 lb 2lb * $2.49/lb = $4.89
or, sorry $4.98 Switched the last two digits while typing.

Other answers:

why do u need to? The question only asks for the cost of tomatoes
tomatoes cost 2.49, and Ross bought 1.5 pounds
He bought 1.5 pounds and 8 ounces. For two different purposes, but they're both still tomatoes.
Ooooo :D I read like 6 times and always thought it is 8 ounce of salad :)
