Answer:12 pounds of chicken

Step-by-step explanation:First we have to make 1 equation that represent what the problem says

h = hamburger pounds = 12

c = chicken pounds

h * $2.75 + c * $3.50 = $75

We replace h with 12

12 * $2.75 + c * $3.50 = $75

$33 + c * $3.50 = $75

c * $3.50 = $75 – $33

c = $42 / $3.50

c = 12
