Can you check my answers please?

1. Convert 2 and 3/4 qts to pints.
1 qt = 2 pints (unit ratio = 2/1)

2 and 3/4 x 2/1
= 9/4 x 2/1
= 22/4
= 5 and 1/2 pints

2. A 40-foot power boat is for sale. How long is the boat to the nearest yard?
1 ft = 3yds (unit ratio = 1/3)

40 x 1/3
= 40/3
= 13 yds

    Thanks! Can you also check these?

    1. Convert 18ft to yards
    3ft = 1yd (unit ratio 1yd/3ft)

    18ft x 1yd/3ft
    = 18/3 yd
    = 6 yds

    2. Convert 2lb to ounces
    1 lb = 16 oz (unit ratio 16oz/1lb)

    2 lb x 16oz/1 lb
    = 32 oz.

    3. Convert 2miles to feet
    1 mi = 5280 ft (unit ratio 5280ft/1mi)

    = 2mi X 5280ft/1mi
    = 10,560ft

    4. Convert 5000lb to tons
    1 T = 2000lbs (unit ratio 1T/2000lbs)

    = 5000lb x 1T/2000lb
    = 5/2 = 2 and 1/2 Tons

    A 3lb pork loin can be cut into 10 pork chops of equal weight. How many ounces in each pork chop?

    1 lb = 16oz (unit ratio 16oz/1lb)

    3lbs x 16oz/1lb = 48 oz
    = 48oz/10 pork chops
    = 4.8oz/pork chop
