    SAT question.

    With Maud pulling a question from a GED test, here's one from an SAT not too long ago:

    A grocery customer spent a total of $9.60 for ground beef and coffee. The coffee cost 2 times as much per pound as the ground beef, and the customer bought 3 times as many pounds of ground beef as pounds of coffee. How much, in dollars, did the customer spend on coffee?

    I would have been surprised had you NOT gotten this, Maud. :-)

    Kevin,

    If my wife hadn't sent me out grocery shopping the other night, I would have never guessed correctly!
