Plums 4

Last year, Peter's Market ordered 15 1/2 pounds of plums from a local orchard. This year, the market plans to order 1 1/4 times as many pounds of plums as were ordered last year. They want 2/5 of this order to be red plums. What is the total amount, in pounds, of red plums the market plans to order this year? (HINT!! Multiply all 3 numbers together at once so that you can cross-cancel. )
