In a two-pound box of nuts and bolts that costs $2.34, the nuts cost 96 cents per pound when purchased separately and the weight in the box due to bolts is equal to the weight due to nuts. How much will two pounds of bolts cost separately?
A. $2.76
B. $1.92
C. $1.59
D. $1.41
E. $1.38
Since it is two pound box carrying equal weights
then 1 pound of nuts and 1 pound of bolts is there in box
As nuts=$0.96/pound
also price of box = 1 pound nuts+1 pound bolts=$2.34
Price of bolts =2.34-0.96 =$1.38
so wight of 2 pounds bolts =2*1.38= $2.76
