Answer:4 pounds

Step-by-step explanation:Per package there are 7 boxes, we know that in each box there are 5 pound bags of chocolate and 2 bags of cotton candy sugar, therefore, per package is:

7 * 5 = 35 pound bag of chocolate

7 * 2 = 14 bags of cotton candy sugar

We know that all this weighs 91 pounds:

35 + 14 * x = 91

if we solve for x:

x = (91 -35) / 14

x = 4

Which means that each bags of cotton candy sugar weighs 4 pounds
