Best Answer

These days it is easier to convert to ounces, do the division and convert back to pounds and ounces:

1 lb = 16 oz

→ 8 lb 3 oz ÷ 3 = (8 × 16) + 3 oz / 3

= 131 oz ÷ 3

= 43⅔ oz

= (2 × 16) + 11⅔ oz

= 2 lb 11⅔ oz

Alternatively, you can do the division as it stands, but convert fractions of pounds to ounces:

8 lb 3 oz ÷ 3 = 8 ÷ 3 lb 3 ÷ 3 oz

= 2⅔ lb 1 oz

= 2 lb ⅔ lb 1 oz

= 2 lb ⅔ × 16 + 1 oz

= 2 lb 11⅔ oz
