To determine the number of cups in a 16-ounce bag, divide the number of ounces per bag (30) by the number of cups per bag (6) to get 5 ounces per cup. Then divide 1 pound (16 ounces) by the ounce-per-cup figure (5) to get a total of 3.2 cups per pound. Convert the decimal to a fraction to put it in measurements used typically in recipes, making it 3 2/10 cups, which reduces to 3 1/5 cups.
