Henry had 2.5 lb of apples for a fruit salad. The recipe says that 5 lb of apples are needed for the salad. Henry went to the store and bought an additional 1.5 lb of apples. Did Henry get a reasonable amount of apples from the store? A. Yes, Henry got a reasonable amount of apples because he only needed 1.5 lb of apples (2.5 – 1 = 1.5) B. No, Henry did not get a reasonable amount of apples because he needed a total of 7.5 pounds of apples (2.5 + 5 = 7.5). C. No, Henry did not get a reasonable amount of apples because he needed 2.5 more pounds of apples (2.5 + 2.5 = 5).

    Well...if he NEEDED 5....and he HAD 2.5 ....he needed to buy an additional \(\large 5 - 2.5 = 2.5\) pounds of apples... so since he only bought 1.5 pounds...he will not have enough
