Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Last Year Order = 15 1/2
This Year: Plan to order 1 1/4 as many as ordered last year.

They want 2/5 to be red
Total amount in pounds  of red plums?

Order for this year
=1 1/4 x 15 1/2
=5/4 x 31/2
=155/8
Converting to a mixed fraction gives:
=19 3/8

2/5 0f the order means
2/5 x 155/8
=310/40
=31/4
Converting to a mixed fraction gives:
=7 3/4 Pounds of red plums


I have made the whole number part to be  in bold for you to see.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
