## How to Convert Grams to Ounces

*Example: How many Ounces are equivalent to 74.9 grams?*

As;

1 grams = 0.03527337 Ounces

74.9 grams = Y Ounces

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

Y equals 74.9 times 0.03527337 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 74.9 * 0.03527337 / 1 = 2.641975413 Ounces

Answer is: 2.641975413 Ounces are equivalent to 74.9 grams.
