How many ounces are there in a pound?

I have taken up a new interest in baking and keep running across directions in ounces and pounds. I have to translate between them and was wondering how many ounces are in a pound?

1 pound (lb) is equal to 16 ounces (oz).
Are you looking for ounces or fluid ounces? If you are looking for fluid ounces there are 15.34 fluid ounces in a pound of water.
I can’t remember exactly, but I think 18 ounces in a lb. You might want to double check that.
