Sharon bought a mixture of nuts that was made up of pecans, walnuts and cashews in a ratio by weight of 2:3 :1, respectively. If she bought 9 pounds of nuts, how many pounds of walnuts were in the mixture? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

2 + 3 + 1 = 6 total ratio

[3 /6] x 9 =4.5 pounds of walnuts in the mixture.
