For Thanksgiving, Park-It Market was offering a special:1 free pound of stuffing
with every 5 pounds the customer buys.
The always welcoming, Mrs. Opal June Silverman, invited all those in her
neighborhood in need of a place to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. Realizing that she
would not have enough stuffing to feed everyone, she made a trip to Park-It
Market to purchase more. She bought only stuffing, and left the store with 30
pounds of the stuff (stuffing).
If she spent $75.00, how many dollars does each pound of stuffing sell for at
