## Measures of Weight

Weight is measured in ounces, pounds, and tons. Use the conversion factors in Table 10.2 and follow the rules stated in the Basic Concepts.

#### Example 1

Change 9 pounds to ounces.

#### Solution 1

9 lb × 16 oz = 144 oz

#### Example 2

Change 11,000 pounds to tons.

#### Solution 2

11,000 ÷ 2000 = 5.5 T

#### Example 3

Change 2 tons to ounces.

#### Example 4

Change 14 pounds 3 ounces to ounces.

#### Solution 4

14 lb × 16 oz = 224 oz

224 oz + 3 oz = 227 oz

#### Example 5

Change 70 ounces to pounds and write the remainder in ounces.

#### Solution 5

Hence, the answer is 4 lb 6 oz.
