Just for future reference, Google will do a lot of calculations for you...you just have to know all of the tricks. I have BeerSmith and I still use google for conversions.

For example, type in the search bar: 1 ounce to percent pounds
...you will get: 1 ounce = 6.25 percent pounds

Pretty cool stuff, once you get used to it.

How come when I multiply 1 lb x 6.25 I get 6.25? is that metric?

I think you are asking the wrong question.

One ounce is 1/16th of a pound, or 6.25%. 6.25 x 16 ounces = 100%, or one pound.

I think to "check the math" you want to multiple 6.25% * 16 oz.: 0.0625 * 16 oz = 1 oz.

damn, homebrewdad beat me to it.
