It takes one hundred thirty pounds of milk to make thirteen pounds of cheese. At that rate, how much milk does it take to make eleven ounces of cheese?

First, we need to convert 13 pounds to ounces: $$13 \times 16 = 208$$

Now, we can form a ratio table:

$$130 = 208$$

$$\text{?} = 11$$

Multiplying both sides by $${11 \over 208}$$, we find that $$6.875 = \color{brown}\boxed{6 {7\over 8}}$$ pounds of cheese are needed to make 11 ounces of cheese.
