I suggest you have your teacher run through this with you. It seems you don't know anything about solving equalities yet. Let him/her do the basics with you and we should be able to assist further.
Exactly.
Teaching 1st degree equations must be one of the hardest things to do...
babyx0dolx, I made a little mistake and I edited my post: the answer is 5/2 pounds which is the same as two and a half pounds (2.5 pounds, if you like it).
