To find out how much Johnny's package weighed, we can set up an equation based on the given information. Let's denote the weight of the package in pounds as ( w ).

The cost of shipping the package can be calculated using the formula:

[ \text{Cost} = 2.49 + 1.24 \times (w - 1) ]

Given that the cost of shipping is $11.17, we can set up the equation:

[ 11.17 = 2.49 + 1.24 \times (w - 1) ]

Now, let's solve for ( w ):

[ 11.17 - 2.49 = 1.24 \times (w - 1) ] [ 8.68 = 1.24 \times (w - 1) ] [ \frac{8.68}{1.24} = w - 1 ] [ 7 = w - 1 ] [ w = 7 + 1 ] [ w = 8 ]

So, Johnny's package weighed 8 pounds.
