haha nvm!! :)

math  jai, Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 3:56am
summing pounds: 7+6+8+7 = 28 pounds
summing ounces: 2+10+5+9 = 26 ounces
since 16 ounces = 1 pound,
26 ounces = 26/16 = 1.625 pounds
total wight = 28+1.625 = 29.625 pounds,,
therefore, 30 is greater than 29.625,
> i think it's letter A
