After paying her suppliers, she made \$4,575.

Step-by-step explanation:

First, you have to multiply the number of pounds purchased for the price:

\$1.29*1250=\$1,612.5

\$1.50*1500=\$2,250

Now, you can add both amounts to find the total cost:

\$1,612.5+\$2,250=\$3,862.5

Now, you have to find the total amount of lb purchased and determine the kg they represent given that 1 kg is equal to 2.20 lb:

1250+1500=2750

2.20 lb  →  1 kg

2750 lb →    x

x=(2750*1)/2.20= 1250 kg

Now, you can find the total amount sold by multiplying the price per kilogram for the amount of kg:

\$6.75*1250=\$8,437.5

Finally, you have to subtract the total cost from the total amount sold:

\$8,437.5-\$3,862.5=\$4,575

According to this, the answer is that after paying her suppliers, she made \$4,575.
