    Answer:

    Grace could have 1.36 pounds, 1.37 pounds, 1.38 pounds or 1.39 pounds of apples.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let a represent pounds of apples.

    We have been given that Grace has 1.35 pounds of strawberries. She has more pounds of apples than pounds of strawberries.

    This means that a is greater than 1.35. We can represent this information in an inequality as:

    a>1.35

    We are also told that Grace has 1.4 pounds of bananas. She has fewer pounds of apples than pounds of bananas. This means that a is less than 1.4. We can represent this information in an inequality as:

    a<1.4

    Upon combining both inequalities, we will get:

    1.35<a<1.4

    Therefore, Grace could have 1.36 pounds, 1.37 pounds, 1.38 pounds or 1.39 pounds of apples.
