    16 oz

    Step-by-step explanation:

    This is a direct proportion.

    Let y = the amount he will pay for 4-oz jars

    8-oz jars = 32 oz

    4-oz jars = y

    Because 8-oz jars was divided by 2 to give 4-oz jars, we divide 32 oz by 2.

    Therefore, y = 32/2 = 16 oz

    So, the artist will pay 16 oz for four 4-oz jars.
