    Answer: the unit price is $1.2 per pound.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In England, Sally notices the cost of bananas is £2.10/kg.

    Applying the conversion rate from dollars to Great Britain Pounds (GBP),

    If $1 = £0.77, then

    £2.10 = 2.10/0.77 = 2.72

    Applying the conversion rate from pounds to kilogram,

    1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds

    Therefore, the unit price in dollars per pound would be

    2.72/2.2 = $1.236

    Rounding up to the nearest cent, it becomes

    $1.2 per pound
