Hint: So for converting the lbs to ounces, first we need to know the relation between the lbs and ounces. So one lb is equal to $16{\text{ ounces}}$ . So by using the unitary method and solving it, we will get the answer to this question.

Since we have lbs given as $\dfrac{3}{4}lbs$ . And we have to convert them into ounces. So as from the hint, we can say that one lb is equal to $16{\text{ ounces}}$ .
So on comparing this with the question and using the unitary method, we can write it as
As one lb is equal to $16{\text{ ounces}}$ .
Therefore, for the $\dfrac{3}{4}lbs$ , it will be equal to
Since we can see that the numerator and denominator can be made simpler so solving it and we get
$\Rightarrow 16 \times \dfrac{3}{4}$
And on solving the above multiplication, we will get the value as
$\Rightarrow 12{\text{ }}ounces$
Therefore, $\dfrac{3}{4}lbs$ is equal to $12{\text{ }}ounces$ .
