Answer:He will have

11/32 of an ouncefor each of the two rings.Step-by-step explanation:He starts with 7/8 of an ounce.

He gives 3/16 of an ounce to Julie.

7/8 – 3/16 = 14/16 – 3/16 = 11/16

He now has 11/16 of an ounce left.

Now he divides 11/16 of an ounce in half.

(11/16) / 2 = 11/16 * 1/2 = 11/32

He will have 11/32 of an ounce for each of the two rings.
