Richard went apple picking at a pick-your-own orchard. One of the growers gave him a basket, and in talking with her, he learned:
- a full basket of apples weighs about 20 pounds
- ten pounds of apples or less costs $0.99 a pound
- more than ten pounds of apples costs $0.85 a pound
- 80 average-sized apples weigh about 40 pounds
At Richard’s local market, apples cost $0.39 each.
