    Q: Rice weighing 33/4 pounds was divided equally and placed in 4 containers. How many ounces of rice were in each?

    3^3/4 ÷ 4 pounds. = (4 × 3 + 3)/4 ÷ 4 pounds. = 15/4 ÷ 4 pounds. = 15/4 × 1/4 pounds. = 15/16 pounds. Now we know that, 1 pound = 16 ounces. Therefore, 15/16 pounds = 15/16 × 16 ounces. = 15 ounces.
