8 1/2 ounces of tuna is packed in a can which weighs 1 3/8 ounces. What is the total weight in pounds of a gross (144) of cans? ______ pounds
How do i start this?
The total weight of each can packed with tuna is the weight of the can plus the weight of the tuna. Multiply that total can weight by 144 to get the weight of 1 gross in OUNCES. Now convert that to POUNDS as requested by the problem.
Is it 88 7/8 pounds?
Yes, that is what I got.
