Accepted Solution

A:

Step-by-step explanation:Here are the answers to the given problem above:Given that Milo bought red apples 2 and 1/2 pounds and green apples 3 3/4 pounds. A. The expression that models the problem would be "2 1/2 + 3 3/4" or "5/2 + 15/4"B. The LCD for least common denominator of the fractions in the given expression would be 4. To find the LCD, you need to list the multiples of both numbers 2 and 4, and the least number that is common is 4.C. Here is the evaluation of the expression:5/2 becomes 10/4 so that it will have the same denominator with the first fraction. So 15/4 + 10/4 and we get 25/4 or 6 and 1/4.D. Therefore, the answer to the problem would be 6 and 1/4 pounds. Hope these answers help. PLease mark me as brainiest :)
