## How to Convert Ounces to Grams

*Example: How many grams are equivalent to 0.61 Ounces?*

As;

1 Ounces = 28.35 grams

0.61 Ounces = Y grams

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

Y equals 0.61 times 28.35 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 0.61 * 28.35 / 1 = 17.2935 grams

Answer is: 17.2935 grams are equivalent to 0.61 Ounces.
