    Answer:

    1\frac{1}{2}\:\mathrm{or\:}1.5\:\mathrm{pounds}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The current ratio is 3/4 pound of dried apples per 1/2 pound of dried pears. Since the new amount of dried pears is 1 pound or double the initial amount, the new amount of dried apples will be double the initial amount:

    \frac{3}{4}\cdot 2=\frac{6}{4}=\frac{3}{2}=1\frac{1}{2}\:\mathrm{pounds}.
