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.

ktklownBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Right 5 pounds is 80 oz. So 175 cents / 80 oz is what?
