How Much Does a "royal With Cheese" Weigh?

Introduction: How Much Does a "royal With Cheese" Weigh?

About: Associates' Degree in Science. Student at the Dwight Look College of Engineering at Texas A&M University, Currently studying Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology.

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.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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.
If you have any comments, drop me a line.
Thanks for reading, now go play around outside!

    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!

    That is just the weight of the meat before cooking.
