Mar 17, 2017

$2 l b s \times 16 = 32 o z s$

#### Explanation:

1 Pound has 16 ounces. ($1 l b = 16 o z s$)

Therefore for 2 pounds:

$2 l b s \times 16 = 32 o z s$

Conversions between the units in the The Imperial system are a real nightmare.

Ounces are used in both weight and capacity!

16 ounces make 1 pound, but 16 fluid ounces make 1 pint.
