    Volume of wheelbarrow , V = 2 1/2 ft³ = 5/2 ft³.

    Volume of soil in wheelbarrow , v = \dfrac{5}{3}\ ft^3 .

    Mass of soil in wheelbarrow , m = 75.25 pounds.

    Now, volume left , v'=\dfrac{5}{6}\ ft^3 .

    Let, mass of  soil un wheelbarrow is x.

    x=\dfrac{\dfrac{5}{6}\times 75.25}{\dfrac{5}{3}}\\\\x=37.625\ pounds

    Hence, this is the required solution.
