Exercise 2: Produce for Sale:
The scale at the shed needs a new battery so the produce harvested had to be weighed on a small scale at home. 5 grapefruit weighed 1.7 pounds each, 4 eggplants weighed .8 pounds each and 6 peppers weighed .6 pounds each. If a teacher offered to buy all the produce for $1.70 per pound, how much money could we make?
