Introduction: 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.
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.
