Answer:

There are 4 pounds in 64 ounces.

Explanation:

There are 16 ounces in one pound, so you have to divide 64 ounces by the 16 ounces per pound.

#"1 pound"="16 ounces"#

# "64 ounces" * "1 pound"/"16 ounces"#

#"64 oz lb"/"16 oz"#

#"64 oz lb"//"16 oz" = "4 pounds"#

Notice that the "oz" label is in both in the numerator and denominator, so it cancels out there.
