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.
