How do you convert ounces to pounds?


Answer by  esteban (1334)

There are 16 ounces in 1 pound, so that means that you will have to take the given number of ounces and divide by 16. Here's an example: Suppose we want to convert 40 ounces to pounds. 40 / 16 = 2.5. So, this tells you that 40 ounces is equal to 2.5 pounds.

There are 16 ounces in a pound. So it depends on which you want to do, find pounds or ounces. If you know the number of ounces, you may divide the amount by 16 to obtain the measurement in pounds. If you know the number of pounds, you may multiply by 16 to get the correct number of ounces.
