1 oz roughly 30 grams.

Probably too late now but just a quick reminder - weight is weight and it doesn't matter what is being weighed, unlike units of volume.

My old scales say 8oz = 240g approx but usually I have found that when converting, most books round up or down so 250g would be acceptable if you convert the rest of the recipe as well using the same rounding method.

An ounce is 28g - round up or down - most recipes that have both measurements use 25g as the conversion

A cup has 250gm. 8oz = one cup = half block of butter.

It is half a pound, and 1 pound = 454g. So, 227g is the answer.

Its actually 200grams 😁

No, it isn't. It is 227g
200g is only just over 7oz

8 oz = 226.796185g
