A little candy weighs 4.7 g. To determine the number of little candies in a bag weighing 5 lb first convert the mass of the bag to grams. 1 pound is equal to 453.592 grams.

5 pounds is 2267.96 g. This divided by 4.7 gives the number of small candies. The result as a whole number is 482.

There are 482 candies weighing 4.7 g in a 5 lb bag.
