    Step-by-step explanation:

    The recipe for baking a berry pie called for 7 ounces of blackberries, 7 ounces of raspberries, and 6 ounces of strawberries.

    Since she only found 12-ounce containers of berries, she bought 1 container of each kind of berry.

    After she baked the pie,

    The number of ounces of blackberries left would be 12 - 7 = 5 ounces.

    The number of ounces of raspberries left would be 12 - 7 = 5 ounces.

    The number of ounces of strawberries left would be 12 - 6 = 6 ounces.

    Total number of ounces of berries that Kate has left would be

    5 + 5 + 6 = 16 berries
