Sheila went blueberry picking with $47 in cash. She picked berries from 10:15 to 12:45, filling four picking baskets. She spent $1.80 per pound for her berries. If she had picked 4 pounds less, she would have had to pay $2 per pound. She spent a total of $42.30.
How much time did she spend picking berries?
About how much time did it take her to fill one picking basket?
How many pounds did she pick in all?
Did she have enough money? If so, how much change did she have left when she went home with all those berries?
About how much would she have paid if she had only filled 3 picking baskets?
If you had all those berries, what would you do with them?
