#### Work Step by Step

To convert 24 ounces to pounds, we need to multiply 24 with the ratio that converts ounces to pounds.
This ratio is $\frac{0.0625\ pound}{1\ ounce}$.
After all, when multiplied by the original expression, this ratio cancels out the undesired units and leaves us with the desired units, pounds.
So, 24 $\times$ $\frac{0.0625\ pound}{1\ ounce}$ =
24 $\times$ 0.0625 =
1.5 pounds.
