Solid food

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}
