hop its right C
The equation for this problem would be 15.77=1.90 times 8.3, as Jonathan buys 8.3 pounds of potatoes and one pound is $1.90. To get the entire cost without the tax, you have to include how much the entire quantity of the product costs, not just part of it.
C: Jonathan's answer is reasonable because 2 x 8 is 16,and 16 is close to 15.77.
