    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
