    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
