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

  • Math -

    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.

  • Math -

    I got 1/15002000

  • Math -

    Oops -- something is wrong. Your answer doesn't make sense.

    (5/14) * 16 = 80/14 = 5.71 ounces
