To find the cost of 1 1/2 pounds of spinach using the unit rate, you need to divide the total cost by the total weight of spinach purchased, and then multiply that result by the desired weight of spinach.

First, calculate the unit rate: Unit rate = Total cost / Total weight of spinach Unit rate = $6.88 / 3 3/4 pounds

Now, convert the mixed number to an improper fraction: 3 3/4 = (4 * 3 + 3)/4 = 15/4 pounds

Unit rate = $6.88 / 15/4 pounds

To divide by a fraction, you multiply by its reciprocal: Unit rate = $6.88 * 4/15

Now, calculate the unit rate: Unit rate = $1.83

Finally, find the cost of 1 1/2 pounds of spinach: Cost = Unit rate * Weight Cost = $1.83 * 1 1/2 pounds

Now, convert the mixed number to an improper fraction: 1 1/2 = (2 * 1 + 1)/2 = 3/2 pounds

Cost = $1.83 * 3/2 pounds Cost =$2.75

So, 1 1/2 pounds of spinach would cost $2.75.
