I read your problem last evening. Nowhere in the problem do you state the mass of a cracker or the number of crackers in a serving. If your answer of 96 crackers is correct, I calculate 6 crackers to make a serving and I obtained 112 grams of sodium to make 50 boxes also. You need to make your posts easier to read by capitalizing i and beginning all sentences with a capital letter. Texting type is ok for text messages but here, where you are asking for help, you need to be clear with your writing and questions.
