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.
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
Step 2: Your Answer, My Conclusion.
In conclusion a "Royal with Cheese" weighs .1136 kg (about one tenth kg). I recommend that you watch Pulp Fiction, it is a classic and should be cherished as such.
I think that people should know how to do this without a calculator.
It impresses friends. Kind of.
And also, this is of course my first instructable.
If you thing it was well done, rate it highly.
