1. The answer to this problem is 4 pounds. The reason it because you add the 10 ounce package of veggies and the 14 ounce package of rice which gives you 24. Then, add that 24 to 40 to get 64. Lastly, divide the 64 by 16 because there are 16 ounces in 1 pound. That gives you 4. That’s how you do this problem. I hope it helped :)
