You are hosting a cookout for 24 people and are supplying the main dishes and several sides. You must take a trip to the grocery store in order to purchase all of the items you need.

You know that hotdogs are $1.50 per package and there are 8 hotdogs in each package. You also know that hamburger is $1.59 per pound and that you can purchase the hamburger in pound increments.

You estimate that of the people will eat hotdogs and 1/2 will eat hamburgers.

Half of those eating hotdogs will eat 2 hotdogs; the remainder will eat one hotdog. You can make 4 hamburger patties from each pound of hamburger. Determine the cost for the meat.
