Any help would be greatly appreciated

    change 131 c to Joules.
    divide by 27.4
    divide by 80

    Sorry, but I don't understand. Haven't done this in a while. I divided 137 J by 27.4 and then 80, but I get 0.05 as my answer.

    is that correct?

    You didn't change 131 calories to Joules first.

    Oh, haha.. Thanks a lot. Very helpful. =]
