Which of the following best describes the relationship between the size of a one ounce container compared to a one pound container?
1 the size of a one oz container is 16 times the size of a pound container. 2 the size of a one oz container is 1\16 the size of a 1 pound container.
3 the size of a 1pound container is 16x more than the 1 oz container. 4 the size of a one pound container is 1/16 the size of a one oz container.
since 1 oz is 1/16 of a pound,
the 1-oz container will be 1/16 the size of the 1-lb container, considering only volume. (B)
Note that (C) says the lb is 16x more, making it 17x the size.
