    Answer:

    25.2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Weight of one bag of  lawn fertilizer = 36

    area one bag of  lawn fertilizer can cover = 10,000 ft^2

    Total area of lawn in the given problem = 7,000 ft^2

    no. of bags of lawn fertilizer needed to cover the lawn = total area of lawn in the given problem / area,  one bag of  lawn fertilizer can cover

                                                                 = 7,000/10,000 = 7/10 = 0.7 bags

    Weight of full bags has 36 pounds of lawn fertilizer.

    therefore,

    Pounds of lawn fertilizer in 0.7 part of bag = 36 * 0.7 = 25.2 pounds (Answer)
