a student council collects aluminium pop tabs to raise money to purchase a wheelchair. A company buys the pop tabs for $0.88 per kilogram. If 1267 poptabs have a mass of one pound, how many pop tabs are needed to purchase a wheelchair worth $1500?
number of kg needed = $1500/.88 = 1704.55
Now convert the number of kg to pounds, then multiply that by 1267
(are you sure the question "mixed" the units of kg and pounds)
