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.

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?
