we know that

[tex] 1pound [/tex] ——-> is equal to ——> [tex] 16 ounces [/tex]

So

By proportion

[tex] frac{1}{16}frac{pound}{ounces} =frac{x}{1}frac{pounds}{ounce} x=frac{1}{16} pounds [/tex]

therefore

the answer isone ounce is equal to [tex] frac{1}{16} [/tex] [tex] pounds [/tex]Since there are 16 oz in 1lb, 1/16 of a pound is one ounce.

Hope I helped!
