Were you ever sold Payment Protection Insurance?
PPI was first introduced to help customers cover payments on their loans or credit cards if they become sick or unemployed. Often borrowers didn't know that the product had been included on the terms of their loan. many people felt pressured at the time into taking out the PPI policy or were assured their loan application would be more successful if the policy was included. If you think that you are a victim of a mis-sold PPI policy then you should make a claim now using a no-win, no-fee solicitor.
This is the formula to convert grams into ounces
Grams X 0.0353 equals ounces
248 g = 8.7544 oz
Answer = int(248 * .0353) [8 oz]
This is how to calculate ounces to pounds and ounces (rather than decimal fractions of a pound)
oz_start = 8
lb_calc = int(oz_start/16) [therefore lb_calc == 0 lb]
oz_calc = 8 - (lb_calc * 16) [therefore oz_calc = 8 oz]
Answer = lb_calc, oz_calc [0 lb, 8 oz]
