(C) p + 16q

(D) p + q

(E) 16p + q

Given: 1 pound = 16 ounces

Since we are asked to find the total number of ounces in p pounds and q ounces,

we need to calculate the number of pounds in terms of ounces, which is 16*p ounces.

Therefore, the total ounces in p pounds and q ounces is 16*p + q(Option E)
