1 lb = 16 oz → 1 lb 8 oz = 1 lb + 8 oz = 16 oz + 8 oz = 24 oz.

(105 lb 8 oz) - (98 lb 12 oz) = (104 lb + 1 lb 8 oz) - (98 lb 12 oz) = 6 lb + (1 lb 8 oz) - (0 lb 12 oz) = 6 lb + 24 oz - 12 oz = 6 lb + 12 oz

12 lb is bigger than 8 oz. 1/2 lb is the same as 8 oz.

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

Yes 8 oz is greater that 1/4 lb because 8 oz is 1/2 lb.

greater

1 lb = 16 oz → 1 lb 8 oz = 1 lb + 8 oz = 16 oz + 8 oz = 24 oz.

(105 lb 8 oz) - (98 lb 12 oz) = (104 lb + 1 lb 8 oz) - (98 lb 12 oz) = 6 lb + (1 lb 8 oz) - (0 lb 12 oz) = 6 lb + 24 oz - 12 oz = 6 lb + 12 oz

16 oz= 1 lb 12 oz= 3/4 lb 8 oz= 1/2 lb 4 oz= 1/4 lb 2 oz= 1/8 lb

Convert to the same units then the comparison can be made: 16 oz = 1 lb → 50 oz = 50 ÷ 16 lb = 3 1/8 lb So 50 oz is greater than any weight less than 3 1/8 lb (eg 3 lb), 50 oz is equal to 3 1/8 lb, and 50 oz is less than any weight greater than 3 1/8 lb (eg 4 lb)

12 lb is bigger than 8 oz. 1/2 lb is the same as 8 oz.

160 oz is 10 lbs, so it is heavier.

8 oz + 9 lb 8 oz = 10 lb 2 lb 4 oz + 10 lb = 12 lb 4 oz 8 oz + 2 lb 4 oz = 2 lb 12 oz
