I'm not 100% sure on it because it has been a while. However we could try and set up an equation for this.
so we are given
$1.55 per pound for candy
x - number of pounds
and we need to know how many pounds we can buy with $15
suppose the equation is set up like
$1.55x = $15
then divide 1.55 on both sides to find out how many pounds we can buy with $15.
ohhhh okay I think that's right I got 9.68 lbs. thank you so much!
