ground:
$1.50 + ($.40)(9) + ($.25)(6) = $6.60
express:
$6.75 + ($1.15)(9) + ($.75)(6) = $21.60

Next, compute the difference between these two amounts:
$21.60 - $6.60 = $15.00.

so the answer is D.

Unless I am missing something, the question is poorly worded. What does "less than 2 pound" mean? Does it mean 1.99 pound, 1 pound, 1.5 pound?
