# How much does a "royal with cheese" weigh?

One day I was talking about the film Pulp Fiction(one of my favorites) with my grandma and suddenly the question came up; How much does a "royal with cheese" weigh in kilograms anyway?
After a little debate on the formula to be used I wrote it up.

Here's how:

OK, if you know some algebra, you should try to do this yourself.
Otherwise, go to the next step.

## Step 1: The formula.

First you need to collect the data;

quarter pounder = .25 lb (1/4 lb)
2.2 lb = 1 kg
"Royal with cheese"(1/4lb) = x kg

Now we put this information into an equation:
.25lb x 8.8 = 2.2lb = 1kg

All we do now is divide both sides of the equation by 8.8 because that is how you simplify an equation such as this.

(.25lb x8.8 = 1kg)/(8.8)

.25lb = .1136kg

very nice of you to post this logical thread. Even though you reversed the data, do not be discouraged in your continued postings. It is dificult to improve from perfection.

Thank you for posting a comment, but I have already edited and reposted my instructable so that the data is no longer reversed. Thanks again!

1kg = ~2lb

think you got it all completely backwards. (its ok, we dont expect much from people still using imperial measures :P )
