## Subtracting Pounds and Ounces

### Subtract Pounds and Ounces: Learn

How to subtract pounds and ounces:

• If the subtracted number of ounces is greater than the original number of ounces, you can "borrow" 16 ounces from the original number of pounds:
• Reduce the original number of pounds by 1
• Increase the original number of ounces by 16
• Subtract the ounces.
• Subtract the pounds.

Example: Subtract 3 pounds 10 ounces from 6 pounds 8 ounces:

• Since 10 is greater than 8, we must "borrow" some ounces:
• 6 - 1 = 5 pounds
• 8 + 16 = 24 ounces
• 24 - 10 = 14 ounces
• 5 - 3 = 2 pounds
• Final answer: 2 pounds 10 ounces
