Almonds sell for $4.50 per pound, and green beans for $3.75 per pound. Paul bought some almonds and some green beans. The total weight was 3.5 pounds and cost $9.75. Let p represent the number of pounds of almonds. Which equation represents the situation described? A. 3.75p + 4.5(p – 3.5) = 9.75 B. 4.5p + 3.75(p – 3.5) = 9.75 C. 4.5p + 3.75(3.5 – p) = 9.75 D. 3.75p + 9.75(3.5 – p) = 4.5

total weight is 3.5 3.5=p+greenbeans 3.5-p=greenbeans cost=p times 4.5+greenbeens times 3.75 total cost=9.75 sub 3.5-p for greenbeens 9.75=4.5p+3.75(3.5-p) 4.5p+3.75(3.5-p)=9.75 answer is C
