A.
Apples- About $10/pound Oranges- About$8/pound
Bananas- About $6/pound B. Annie spent about$24 in total.
C.
(1.75 X 5) + (2.35 X 4) + (1.50 X 3) = 22.65 (dollars)
My estimation was more than the actual amount. I think that the estimation was more because most of the unit prices had to be rounded up, not down.
