Answer: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.
