## How to Convert Ounces to Short Tons

*Example: How many Short tons are equivalent to 77.96 Ounces?*

As;

1 Ounces = 3.125E-5 Short tons

77.96 Ounces = Y Short tons

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

Y equals 77.96 times 3.125E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 77.96 * 3.125E-5 / 1 = 0.00243625 Short tons

Answer is: 0.00243625 Short tons are equivalent to 77.96 Ounces.
