Pound is a non-SI measure of weight and the ounce is 1/16 of a pound. Hence:

1 Pound = 16 Ounces = 0.453592 kg

1 Ounce = 1/16 Pound = 0.0625 Pound = 0.0283495 kg = 28.3495g

So, in order to convert mass given in pounds into mass given in ounces, multiply by 16:

M (ounces) = 16 * M (pounds)


How Many Ounces Are in a Quarter Pound?

Quarter pound is exactly one forth of a pound:

Quarter Pound = 4 Ounces = 0.113398 kg = 113.398 g = ~113.4 g (grams)

Thus, if You have 2.3 Quarter Pounds of 'something', that would be:

M(ounces) = 4 * M(quarter pounds) = 4 * 2.3 = 9.2 ounces = 260.81 g = ~281 g (grams)

0.2 lbs to oz: M(ounces) = 16 * 0.2 = 3.2 oz

1.2 lbs to oz: M(ounces) = 16 * 1.2 = 19.2 oz

1.8 lbs to oz: M(ounces) = 16 * 1.8 = 28.8 oz

12 oz to lbs: M(pounds) =12 / 16 = 0.75 lbs
