## How to Convert Grams to Ounces

*Example: How many Ounces are equivalent to 12.6 grams?*

As;

1 grams = 0.03527337 Ounces

12.6 grams = Y Ounces

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 12.6 times 0.03527337 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.6 * 0.03527337 / 1 = 0.444444462 Ounces

Answer is: 0.444444462 Ounces are equivalent to 12.6 grams.
