Answer

70.9 g (rounded)

Work Step by Step

2.5 oz to grams We’re changing from a U.S weight unit to a metric weight unit. In the “U.S. to Metric Units” side of the table, you see that 1 ounce = 28.35 grams. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 ounce)/(28.35 grams) Or(28.35 grams)/(1 ounce). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out ounce (that is, ounce is in the denominator). 2.5 oz *(28.35 grams)/(1 ounce). = 70.875 grams = 70.9 g (rounded)
