Ok so do you know how many ounces equal a pound?
AndrewIsHere
  • AndrewIsHere
If not, I will tell you. 16 ounces equal a pound. So... We are simply going to makes sure all units are in pounds. Two of the answers are already in pounds. Lets convert the answers that are in ounces to pounds.

I'm sorry, we are going to convert everything into ounces. I did not see the amount of ounces in box 1 and 4, which are only fractions of a pound. Since they are only fractions of a pound, we are going to convert everything into ounces, to make it easier for us.

Box 2 has 1.3. 1 pound = 16 ounces, which means we are left with .3 pounds. Multiply that by 16, and you get 4.8. Add 16 + 4.8 and you get 20.8 ounces

Box 3 has 2.6 punds. There are two full pounds, which would mean there are 32 ounces (16*2). .6 pounds are left, multiply that by 16 and you get 9.6, Add 9.6 to 32 and you get 41.6 ounces.
