When he returned to school, he weighed 191 pounds 6 ounces. How much weight did Jeremy gain over winter break? Answer by Earlsdon(6287)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!To find Jeremy's weight gain, subtract his weight before the break (185 lbs 13 oz) from his post-break weight (191 lbs 6 oz). 191 lbs 6 oz - 185 lbs 13 oz Borrow 1 lb from the 191 and convert to oz (1 lb = 16 oz) and add this the 6 oz. 190 lbs 22 oz - 185 lbs 13 oz = 5 lbs 9 oz Jeremy gained 5 lbs 9 oz.
