    13 (1 Ounce weights)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Unit of conversion: 1 Pound = 16 ounce

    3 Pounds = 3 x 16 = 48 Ounce

    Therefore:

    Julius put 48 Ounce on one side side of scale. Abel put 35 1 ounce weight on the other side.

    Let the number of 1 Ounce weight needed by Abel = x

    Then, to balance the scale, the expression below holds.

    48=35+x

    Subtract 35 from both sides

    48-35=35-35+x

    x=13

    Abel needs 13 more 1 Ounce weights to balance the scale.
