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
= 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
= 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
4. Convert 5000lb to tons
1 T = 2000lbs (unit ratio 1T/2000lbs)
= 5000lb x 1T/2000lb
= 5/2 = 2 and 1/2 Tons

Thanks again!! Last question, promise (at least for today :-).. Forgot to include this one:
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
