    The cost of ground beef is given as {eq}$5 {/eq} per pound.

    To find the cost of 3 pounds, we can multiply the cost per pound by the number of pounds:

    Cost of 3 pounds = {eq}3 \times 5 = 15 {/eq}

    Therefore, the cost of 3 pounds of ground beef is {eq}$15{/eq}.

    To find the cost of {eq}\frac{1}{2}{/eq} pound, we can multiply the cost per pound by {eq}\frac{1}{2}{/eq}:

    Cost of {eq}\frac{1}{2}{/eq} pound = {eq}\frac{1}{2} \times 5 = 2.5 {/eq}

    Therefore, the cost of {eq}\frac{1}{2}{/eq} pound of ground beef is {eq}$2.5{/eq}.

    To find the cost of {eq}\frac{1}{4}{/eq} pound, we can multiply the cost per pound by {eq}\frac{1}{4}{/eq}:

    Cost of {eq}\frac{1}{4}{/eq} pound = {eq}\frac{1}{4} \times 5 = 1.25 {/eq}

    Therefore, the cost of {eq}\frac{1}{4}{/eq} pound of ground beef is {eq}$1.25{/eq}.

    To find the cost of {eq}\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pound, we can multiply the cost per pound by {eq}\frac{3}{4}{/eq}:

    Cost of {eq}\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pound = {eq}\frac{3}{4} \times 5 = 3.75 {/eq}

    Therefore, the cost of {eq}\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pound of ground beef is {eq}$3.75{/eq}.

    To find the cost of {eq}3\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pounds, we can add the cost of 3 pounds and the cost of {eq}\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pound:

    Cost of {eq}3\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pounds = Cost of 3 pounds + Cost of {eq}\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pound = {eq}3 \times 5 + \frac{3}{4} \times 5 = 18.75 {/eq}

    Therefore, the cost of {eq}3\frac{3}{4}{/eq} pounds of ground beef is {eq}$18.75{/eq}.
