Answer:

Susie had #1.8# pounds of apples in each pile.

Explanation:

This is just simple division.

Because Susie is dividing a #9# pound bag into #5# equal piles, we can say that she is dividing #9# by #5#, or in other terms, #9÷5#.

#9 ÷ 5 = 1.8#

#therefore# Susie had #1.8# pounds of apples in each pile.
