Overal Charge = ((1386 x 11.4) + (794 x 3.9) + 1100) * 1.175

Overal Charge = (15800.4 + 3096.6 + 1100) * 1.175

Overal Charge = 19997 * 1.175

Overal Charge = 23496.475 pence

Overal Charge = £234.96

Hi;

Is it your B-Day?

Hi Mandy. What topic of maths would you like help with? The maths above may be too challenging for you so shall we do some easier maths instead, but can you give me an idea of what chapter, topic or area you would like help with?

EDIT: I will probably go through some of those questions, but it is a good idea to try some yourself before someone gives away all the answers and makes it too easy.

Hints: Don't worry about the complexity of the conversion factor. Use your calculator for that bit.

Essentially we are trying to convert ounces into grams.

Hi if 1 ounce = 28.3495 then 6 ounces would be 28.3495 X 6 = 170.097 am I right or not send me a message back please

Yes that is correct.

Hint: First work out the total amount of soft margarine then convert it into grams.

There was an amount of 6 ounces and 1.5 ounces to add together.

Hi 6 ounces = 170.097grams and 1.5 ounces = 28.3495 + 14.17475 = 42.52425 grams so 170.097 + 42.52425 = 212.62125 am I right or not let me know

Yes that's correct.

Hint: What is the numerator and what is the denominator? What has to be divided by what?

Do you have to multiply by 100 for any reason?
