A bakery bakes two kinds of bread, X and Y. With the same amount of money, you can afford either \(\frac{2}{3}\) pounds of bread X or \(1\frac{1}{4}\) of bread Y. How many pounds can I afford of bread Y, with the same amount I can buy \(1\frac{1}{2}\) of X?
A. \(\frac{5}{4}\)
B.\(1\frac{1}{4}\)
C. \(2\frac{13}{16}\)
D. \(3\frac{3}{7}\)
E. \(5\frac{1}{4}\)
OA:C\(\frac{2}{3}X=\frac{5}{4}Y\)
\(1X=\frac{3*5}{2*4}Y=\frac{15}{8}Y\)
\(\frac{3}{2}X=\frac{3*15}{2*8}Y=\frac{45}{16}Y=2\frac{13}{16}Y\)
