# At the bulk food store, Stacey bought 7 pounds of nuts. She used 8 ounces of nuts in a recipe and then made small bags to use for snacks. If each small bag contained 4 ounces of nuts, how many small bags of nuts did Stacey make?

After subtracting 8 ounces from 7 pounds, divide the number of remaining ounces by 4 to get the total number of bags.
There are 16 ounces in a pound. After using 8 ounces in a recipe, there are 6.5 pounds left. Multiple $6.5 \cdot 16$ ounces, to find the total number of ounces left for the small bags. Then divide the number of ounces by 4, to get the total number of bags made.
$16 \cdot 6.5 = 104$
$\frac{104}{4} = 26$
