    Answer: There are 8 jars in the package.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given: Weight of each jar = 18 ounces

    Weight of box = 6 ounces

    If weight of package = 150 ounces , then the weight of all jars (only) = 150-6 ounces = 144 ounces

    Number of jars = (Weight of all jars) ÷ (Weight of each jar)

    = (144 ÷ 18)

    = 8

    Hence, there are 8 jars in the package.
