The percentage of fat in a container of yogurt 2013-05-17
From Katy:
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?

The volume of a yogurt pot 2008-12-04
From Robyn:
Okay, I know you have some answers on converting this already, but I can not convert the yoghurt pot I need yet into ml. Is there some way to explain this using the yoghurt as an example? The pot's 150g of lowfat strawberry yoghurt... would the 'low-fat' have an effect on this? I'm sorry if this is a bother for you to answer, I just don't seem to be able to get it... Have a nice day. - Robyn
