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
