#### Work Step by Step

Given, Geralyn bought 20 oz of strawberries for $2.29.
We need to find the price per pound for the strawberries, to the nearest cent, so first we will convert the 20 oz to pound.
Use a unit fraction with pounds (the unit for your answer) in the numerator, and ounces (the unit being changed) in the denominator. Because 16 ounces (oz) = 1 pound (lb), the necessary unit fraction is
(1 lb)/(16 oz)
Multiply 20 oz times the unit fraction.
20 * (1 lb)/(16 oz) = 5/(4 ) lb = 1.25 lb
Now to calculate the price per pound, we need to divide the cost $2.29 by 1.25 lb,
So, 2.29 / 1.25 = $1.83(rounded)
Therefore the price per pound for the strawberries is $1.83
