1. 266g * 1oz/28g = 266/28 oz
Note how the "g" units cancel, just like any other numeric factor
you can always multiply by 1 and not change anything.
Since
1oz = 28g
divide by 28g to get
1oz/28g = 1

2. I got 9.5 ounces because 28 times 9.5 is 266. So that would prove our answer (9.5) correct. 💗😊 I hope that helped.
