Hi,

Initial cost for 1 pound = \$1, but ONLY 4/5th is used ..
so cost of 4/5 pound = \$1 or 1pound = \$5/4
1 pound of peeled means 2 cup of apple juice..
so 2 cup = \$5/4, but 3 cups are required for 1 apple pie, so cost of 3 cups = 1 apple pie = \$5/4 * 3/2 = \$15/8..
If 1 pie costs \$15/8, p pie will cost \$15p/8..
B
