What is 750 lb = to in tons
What is 5/14 lbs = to in oz

1 ton = 2,000 lbs.
You could use a proportion and solve for x.
1/2000 = x/750
2,000x = 750
x = 750 / 2,000
x = 0.375 tons
1 lb. = 16 ounces
Take the second problem from there.

Oops  something is wrong. Your answer doesn't make sense.
(5/14) * 16 = 80/14 = 5.71 ounces
