We need to figure out how much they cost per pound.
We're told that he got 5.4 pounds' worth
and the total damage was $46.75.
If 5.4 pounds cost $46.75
then we can just divide both sides of our equation here
by 5.4 to get the price of a single pound.
5.4 divided by 5.4 in California is 1.
46.75 divided by 5.4 is...
Each pound of ribs cost Ramses $8.66.
Our answer is D.
And we really hope you used a wet-nap before attempting to answer this question.
