Food weight

Stacie is a resident at the medical facility where you work. You are asked to chart the amount of solid food that she consumes. For the noon meal, today she ate 1/2 of a 3-ounce serving of meatloaf, 3/4 of her 3-ounce serving of mashed potatoes, and 1/3 of a 2-ounce serving of green beans. How many ounces of solid food did Stacie consume? Round final answer to two decimal places.

Result

m =  4.42 oz

Solution:

m=12 3+34 3+13 2=53124.41674.42 ozm=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 2 } \cdot \ 3 + \dfrac{ 3 }{ 4 } \cdot \ 3 + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 3 } \cdot \ 2=\dfrac{ 53 }{ 12 } \doteq 4.4167 \doteq 4.42 \ \text{oz}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
