drwls here is another one of those questions like the last one we submitted if this will help with what they are after.
200 dollars/1 ton x 100 cents/1 dollar x 1 ton/2000 pounds x 1 pound/16 ounces
could you please show me how you come up with the answer? I am not sure how you got the answer for the other problem.

9th grade algebra 
Riley,
set up like this:
200*100*1*1

1*1*2000*16
just do the math and your answer should come out right. if you are unsure whether the untis will cancel each other out as they did in this case then just right it all out each term its own fraction and see if the untis agree and cancel.
