### Add Pounds and Ounces: Learn

Since there are 16 ounces in a pound, this is how to add pounds and ounces:

• Add the ounces together.
• Add the pounds together.
• If the number of ounces is 16 or more, regroup the ounces into pounds:
• Divide the ounces by 16.
• Add the quotient to the number of pounds.
• The remainder is the number of extra ounces.

Example: Add 5 pounds 8 ounces plus 3 pounds 10 ounces:

• 8 + 10 = 18 ounces
• 5 + 3 = 8 pounds
• Since 18 is 16 or more, regroup the ounces into pounds:
18 ÷ 16 = 1 pound 2 ounces
• Final answer: 9 pounds 2 ounces
