Microeconomics help. How many pounds of potatoes can she buy?
Janice will purchase_____ pound(s) of potatoes with the initial income.
Janice will purchase pound(s) of potatoes with the second income.
I tried adding $1.50+1.14+1.05+.30+.30....until I found that she can buy 7 pounds.
And for the $3.00 I did the same thing and found she can buy 2 pounds.
My answers were wrong. I'm not understanding how to work the problem. If a pound of potatoes cost 1.25, then why would the other points cost $1.50, $1.14...etc? I'm just confused.
Any help you be appreciated.
