    1 peso = 0.050 Usd

    28 peso = $1.39

    $1.39 per kg

    1 kg = approximately 2.204 lbs

    $1.39/2.204 = approximately 0.6304

    Answer:

    $0.66 per pound.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We have been given that you purchase fresh strawberries in Mexico for 28 pesos per kilogram.

    We know 1 peso equals $0.052 and 1 kg equals 2.20462 pounds.

    \frac{\text{28 pesos}}{\text{ kg}}\times \frac{\$0.052}{\text{Peso}}\times \frac{\text{kg}}{\text{2.20462 pounds}}

    \frac{28\times \$0.052}{\text{2.20462 pounds}}

    \frac{\$1.456}{\text{2.20462 pounds}}

    \frac{\$0.66}{\text{pound}}

    Therefore, the price is $0.66 per pound.
