This is the list of answer choices:

A.) Blueberries are $0.23 per pound more expensive at the farmer’s market.

B.) Blueberries are $0.50 per pound less expensive at the farmer’s market.

C.) Blueberries are $0.80 per pound less expensive at the farmer’s market.

D.) Blueberries are $1.40 per pound more expensive at the farmer’s market.

The answer is: option C.) Blueberries are $0.80 per pound less expensive at the farmer’s market.

Explanation:

All the choices are compare the cost of 1 pound of bluberries at both market places.

So, find the cost per pound at each place:

1) grocery store

cost = $ 2.80 / 8 ounce × 16 ounce / pound = $ 5.6 / pound

2) farmers market

cost = $4.20 / 14 ounces × 16 ounce / pound = $ 4.8 / pound

3) Calculate the difference per pound:

$ 5.6 / pound - $ 4.8 / pound = $ 0.8 / pound.

So, the cost of the blueberries at grocery store is $ 0.8 / pound greater than the cost of the blueberries at the farmer's market, which is equivalent to that the cost at the farmer's market is $ 0.8/pound less than the cost at the grocery store. And that is what option C) states.
