Are you Sure its fat free?

This paper is about calories, protein, and fat. I will be showing you what I picked and

What my calories, protein, and fat are. This did not seem too hard to do. I just hope I do

Well on this paper as I did the other one.

I have picked Pizza, Pancakes, and Hamburger Helper for my fat, calories, and protein. I

Will show what I have done to come up with these answers. I have learned so much from

The paper that I am doing and I seemed to like doing it and seeing how I came up with

Are you Sure its Fat Free3

Supreme Pizza

Fat: 14 g

Protein: 14 g

Calories: 350

Fat Calculations

Convert the fat content into calories first, by multiplying the number of the fat by 9:

14 x 9 = 126 calories

Divide the fat calories by the total calories and multiply by 100% to get the percentage

Of the calories derived from fat:

126/350 x 100% = 0.36 x 100 = 36% from fat

Protein Calculations

Convert protein into calories first, by multiplying the number of grams of protein by 4:

14 x 4 = 56 calories

Divide the protein calories by the total calories and multiply by 100% to get the

Percentage of calories derived from protein:

56/350 x 100% = 0.15 x 100 = 15% protein

Pancakes:

Fat: 1.5 g

Protein: 5 g

Calories: 160

Fat Calculations

Convert the fat into calories first, by multiplying the numbers of grams of fat by 9:

1.5 x 9 = 13.5 Calories

Divide the fat calories by the total calories and multiply by 100% to get the percentage of

Calories derived from fat:

13.5/160 x 100% = 0.084 x 100 = 8.4% from fat

Protein Calculations

Convert the protein content into calories first, by multiplying the number of grams of

Protein by 4:

5x4 = 20 Calories

Divide the protein calories by total calories and multiply by 100% to get the percentage

Of calories derived from protein:

4/160 x 100% - 0.025 x 100 = 2.5% protein

Hamburger Helper:

Fat: 2 g

Protein: 4 g

Calories: 130

Fat Calculations

Convert the fat into calories first, by multiplying the numbers of grams of fat by 9:

2 x 9 = 18 Calories

Divide the fat calories by the total calories and multiply by 100% to the percentage of

Calories derived from fat:

18/130 x 100% = 0.138 x 100 = 13.8% from fat.

Protein Calculations

Convert the protein content into calories first, by multiplying the number of grams

Of protein by 4:

4 x 4 = 16

Are you Sure its fat free6

Divide the protein calories by the total calories and multiply by 100% to get to the

Percentage of calories derived from protein:

16/130 x 100% = 0.123 x 100 = 12.3% from protein.

I have learned so much in doing this paper. I may of not done it right, but I did my very

Best on it and I hope did well on it. What I learned was how to convert by multiplying

The fat by 9 and the getting the calories of the food. Then I divided the fat by 4 and got

Another number of calories by that.

Then I multiplied the protein by 9 like. Then I got the number of grams of protein. Then

After doing that I then divided by 4 and times it by 100% and got a percentage and then

Times again to get the actual percentage. This paper taught me a lot that I never knew and

I know that I will never forget it. This was an experience and one of the best math I could

Of done in my life.
