# If 1 pound, 12 ounces of fish cost $2.24, what is the cost of the fish per pound?

## 16 oz per lb

1 3/4 lb for $2.24

2.24 / (7/4) = ?

## Scott how did you get 1 3/4 pounds?

Do I multiply 1/34 to $2.24?

## To find the cost of the fish per pound, we need to convert the weight of the fish from pounds and ounces to pounds only. Since there are 16 ounces in 1 pound, we can convert 12 ounces to pounds by dividing it by 16.

12 ounces /16 = 0.75 pounds

Now, let's calculate the cost per pound by dividing the total cost of $2.24 by the weight in pounds (1 pound + 0.75 pounds).

Total weight = 1 pound + 0.75 pounds = 1.75 pounds

Cost per pound = $2.24 / 1.75 pounds

Using a calculator, we find that the cost of the fish per pound is approximately $1.28 per pound.

## To find the cost of the fish per pound, we need to determine the cost for 1 pound of fish.

First, let's convert the weight given in pounds and ounces to pounds only. Since there are 16 ounces in 1 pound, we can convert the 12 ounces to pounds by dividing it by 16.

12 ounces ÷ 16 ounces/pound = 0.75 pounds

Now, let's determine the cost of 1 pound of fish. We divide the total cost of $2.24 by the weight in pounds (1 pound + 0.75 pounds).

$2.24 ÷ (1 pound + 0.75 pounds) = $2.24 ÷ 1.75 pounds

To find the cost of the fish per pound, we divide the total cost by the weight in pounds.

$2.24 ÷ 1.75 pounds ≈ $1.28 per pound

Therefore, the cost of the fish per pound is approximately $1.28.
