1. IsTim

I think you divide the money by the weight.

2. RuSSian1909

yeah I know that. lol

3. Agent47

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

4. Agent47

потом ответ подели на 16 и все.

5. RuSSian1909

I have no idead what that says@Agent47

6. Agent47

Then you should stop misleading people and telling them that you're russian *facepalm*...

7. RuSSian1909

dude, I was born in russia...i kinda forgot the lanugage at 6years. so please if ur gna be rude. go away.

8. lgbasallote

do you know how many cents there are in \$1.75?

9. RuSSian1909

nope im trying to convert but its confusing me . 25pounds = 1 quarter; 4 quarters=1 hunderweight.

10. lgbasallote

hint: in \$1.00 there are 100 cents...does that give you any hints?

11. ktklown

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.

12. RuSSian1909

175cents?

13. lgbasallote

right

14. lgbasallote

now divide that by 5

15. RuSSian1909

@ktklown that's what im trying to get there.

16. RuSSian1909

@lgbasallote 5?

17. lgbasallote

divide 175 by 5

18. ktklown

OK how many ounces are in 1 pound?

19. RuSSian1909

16oz=1lb

20. ktklown

right 16oz = 1lb, so how many ounces are in 5 pounds?

21. RuSSian1909

idk.

22. RuSSian1909

80

23. ktklown

Right 5 pounds is 80 oz. So 175 cents / 80 oz is what?

24. RuSSian1909

2.1875

25. ktklown

right 2.1875 cents / oz. that's the answer you want

26. RuSSian1909

so there is no oz just 1?

27. RuSSian1909

oh nvm lol
