Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Katy, a student:

There is a question that I' having trouble with. It says: "A container of yogurt contains 228 g of water, 54 g of carbohydrates, 12 g of protein and 6 g of fat, what percentage of the yogurt is fat?" How do you convert 6 g into percentage?

Hi Katy,

The yogurt contains water, carbohydrates, protein and fat. How many grams in total? What fraction of that is fat? What is that fraction as a percentage?

Write back if you are still having problems with this,
