    Let’s convert 8 pounds and 3 ounces, into all ounces.

    So we know one pound = 16 ounces.

    1 lb = 16 oz.

    Now since Omar is 8 pounds + 3 ounces, we multiply 16 by 8, and add on the 3:

    16 * 8 = 128

    128 + 3 = 131

    So Omar weights 131 ounces when he was born.

    Now Omar has to gain 5 ounces each week, for 4 weeks. This means in total, he’ll have to gain 5*4=20 ounces in 4 weeks.

    Add them together:

    131 + 20 = 151 oz OR 9 7/16 lb.
