A store has apples on sale for three dollars for 2 pounds. How many pounds of apples can you buy for nine dollars. If an apple is approximately 5 ounces how many apples can you buy for nine dollars? Explain your reasoning

So for the first question I got 6 apples because I divided 9 by 1.50 because half of \$3.00 is \$1.50 and my answer was 6.
For the next question I was going to do \$9 divided by .05 and got 180 what do I do next

1. 1 ounce = 0.0625 pounds
2 pounds = 32 ounces which costs 3 dollars

with 9 dollars we can buy 96 ounces of apples
apples = 96 ounces/5 ounces = 19.2
I got 19.2 apples but you cant actually buy 19.2 apples so the answer is 19 apples
