Mr. Ross bought 1.5 pounds of tomatoes for spaghetti sauce and 8 ounces for salad. Tomatoes cost $2.49 a pound. How much did Mr. Ross pay for the tomatoes? I got $4.99...Is this right?

    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

    He bought 1.5 pounds and 8 ounces. For two different purposes, but they're both still tomatoes.
