Divide Pounds and Ounces

Divide Pounds and Ounces: Learn

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

  • Convert pounds-and-ounces amounts to ounces only. To do so, multiply the pounds by 16 and add the ounces.
  • Divide.
  • Convert the ounces back to pounds and ounces by dividing by 16.
  • The quotient is the number of pounds and the remainder is the number of ounces.

Example: Divide 10 pounds 8 ounces by 4:

  • 10*16+8 = 168 ounces
  • 168*4 = 42 ounces
  • 42÷16 = 2R10
  • Final answer: 2 pounds 10 ounces
