# What is 64 ounces in pounds?

Dec 11, 2015

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.

$\text{1 pound"="16 ounces}$

$\text{64 ounces" * "1 pound"/"16 ounces}$

$\text{64 oz lb"/"16 oz}$

$\text{64 oz lb"//"16 oz" = "4 pounds}$

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