at a store you bought 2 pounds of apples and 1 1/3 pounds of grapes. If the store's scale measures to the nearest half pound, what is the range of possible actual weights for the sum of both purchases of fruits.
I would not see a range. Since the 1 1/3 (1.33) pound is more than half way to 1 1/2 (1.50), I would assume that it registers 3.5. However, if you need a range, I would say 3.0-3.5.
