believe me i really want to be good at Mathcounts i was really close to winning i need some practice i think your question was from the sprint of this year and the answer is 4.5
since 2+3+1 (this is the ratio)=6 you have 9pounds over 6 parts
each part is 9/6 or 3/2 so 3/2 multiplied by 3 since respectively it is the 3 so you have 4.5 pounds
