1 pound is 16 ounces.
.2 pounds is 3.2 ounces.
.2 pounds does not equal 2 ounces.
Now if only americans could do math
20% of 16 oz is .2lbs, or 3.2 oz
16oz * .2 = 3.2oz
3.2oz / 16oz = .2lbs
20% of 10oz is 2oz, not .2lbs more like .125lbs
10oz is a rather useless measurement in this instance.
This should be fairly self explanitory to anyone who as taken a basic chem or physics course. They seem to like to do a lot of unit conversion.
And people like to say that america has a great education system.
