Scott's book weighs 19 ounces. It weighs half as much as Doug's book. How many ounces does Doug's book weigh?

To get the answer you multiply Scott's book by 2 ( because it is half of Doug's book)

 

19 x 2 = 38

 

Doug's book is 38 ounces.

   19 = 1/2 d     given       Multiply both sides by 2

2*`19 = 2 * 1/2 d

38 = d                   d book = 38 oz
