    Problem:

    A chocolate bar weighs 12 ounces. What is its weight in grams?

    Solution:

    16 oz = 1 lb
    1 kg = 2.2 lbs
    1000 g = 1 kg

    Find:
    x g = 12 oz

    x g = 12 oz x (1 lb/16 oz) x (1 kg/2.2 lb) x (1000 g/1 kg)
    x g = 340.1 g

    Answer:

    The 12 oz chocolate bar weighs 340.1 g.
