I am TERRIBLE at math (like 2+2=7 bad) and I need help figuring out how many ounces my steak is for dinner tonight so I can log it Any help would be MUCH MUCH appreciated!!
2 steaks= .79 lb, one is mine, how many oz is that and how do you figure it?

How much did you pay for the 2 steaks? Are they about the same size?
DOH  never mind, I was reading that as $.79...0 
.395 ounces0

same size steaksn, beef round bottom round steaks from ralph's, $4.49/lb, paid $3.550

.395 ounces
How did you calculate that? LOL i can't figure out the formula!!0 
sorry, wrong, about 12 ounces, there's 16 ounces in a pound so divide that by 2 and you get about 6.32 ounces so it's a little less than 6.32 ounces.0

Hi! Each steak if they are about the same size are approx. 6.3 oz.
There are 16 oz. in a pound, so you multiply .79 by 16, then divide by 2 steaks=6.32.
It's like saying they weigh 79% of a pound. Which is 12.64 oz. of the 16 total ounces in a pound.
Then divide by two servings, you get about 6 oz.
Enjoy Dinner!
Hope that helps0 
Thank you everyone!!! :flowerforyou:0

PS. Katie I just noticed your wieght ticker.
You and I have the same goals!!!
I started in early February at 142lb. my goal is by early June 125lbs or less.

Keep up the good work!0

case solved0 
Hi Kaitie, maybe this helps:
Go to Google and type:
.79 lb to oz
an google converts the quantities for you and answers: ".79 pounds = 12.64 ounces"
now you have the oz for both steaks, next you have to divide in 2:
so next you could also type
12.64 / 2
and the anwer is (just as snugglybare said):
12.64 / 2 = 6.32 (oz per steak)
Google has an integrated calculator and converter.0
