For this one, we need to know the following conversions:

1 pound = 16 ounces
$1 = 100 cents Converting the cost of 3 pounds of cashews into cents and ounces, then, we get: 48 ounces of cashews costs 800 cents. How much does 1 ounce cost? We divide both numbers by 48: 1 ounce of cashews costs $$\frac{800}{48} = 16.667$$ cents. 9 ounces of cashews, then, will cost: $$16.667 \times 9 = 150$$ cents.
