The bottom part of the tool is an **add up pounds and ounces calculator**. Here, you can enter two masses expressed in different units and get the sum in yet another unit. For example, if you'd like to add 3 pounds to 33 ounces, normally, you'd have to first convert ounces to pounds and ounces:

`3 lb + 33 oz = ?`

`33 / 16 = 2 R 1`

(we divided with a remainder)

`33 oz = 2 lb 1 oz`

And then, you could add the converted value:

`3 lb + 2 lb 1 oz = 5 lb 1 oz`

If you need to subtract a value, type the negative sign before the value you want to subtract. That works here, too! 🙂
