Converting grams into ounces, the formula
To convert grams into ounces, multiply grams by .0353
219 g = 7.7307 oz
Answer = int(219 * .0353) [7 oz]
To convert ounces to pounds and ounces (rather than decimal fractions of a pound) requires a little more work
oz_start = 7
lb_calc = int(oz_start/16) [therefore lb_calc == 0 lb]
oz_calc = 7 - (lb_calc * 16) [therefore oz_calc = 7 oz]
Answer = lb_calc, oz_calc [0 lb, 7 oz]
