Multiplying ounces for PO

1. Multiplying ounces for PO

When doing bulk mail, I have to weigh a single piece and then multiply it by
the \$ of peices. Weight of each piece is in ounces(obviously not liquid).
The weight of a single piece is 1.8 ounces
and say I have 400 of them...what is the total weight? Using a simple
calculator would not give me a pound answer.

Can't figure it out...dumber than a stump today.  Register To Reply

Not sure exactly how you have your sheet set up but you could try this:

=400*1.8/16

400 x 1.8 ounces should give you a total number of ounces, 16 ounces in a
pound I believe thus you would divide by 16 to get the number of pounds.

If you are not sure exactly how many of the pieces of mail you have you
could use the COUNT function to count the number of pieces of mail and stick
that in the formula.

Does that help?

Yes it does...the over 16 makes sense...duh. Thanks also for the question
about the percentages. What you suggested worked perfectly!

Thanks so much.
