    I think you divide the money by the weight.

    сначала посчитай сколько стоит один фунт муки в долларах. Потом подсчитай сколько это будет в центах.

    To compute cents per ounce you divide the total number of cents by the total number of ounces. So first figure out how many cents are in $1.75, then figure out how many ounces are in 5 pounds. Then divide.
