If there are 1200 calories in one pound of ground beef, how many calories are in 3 oz of ground beef?

One pound equals 16 ounces.
Three ounces is 3/16 of a pound.
Divide 3 by 16 to find what part of a pound 3 ounces is.
Then divide 1200 by this number. That will tell you the number of calories in 3 oz.
If you post your answer, we'll be glad to check it.
