Work Step by Step

150 g to ounces We’re changing from a metric weight unit to a U.S. weight unit. In the “Metric to U.S. Units” side of the table, you see that 1 gram = 0.035 ounce. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 gram)/(0.035 ounces) Or(0.035 ounces)/(1 gram). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out grams (that is, grams is in the denominator). 150 g * (0.035 ounces)/(1 gram) = 5.25 ounces = 5.3 oz (rounded)
