#1. If you are in a nutrition course I assume you can name the food groups. Frankly, I think the problem needs restructuring. For example, french fries are carbohydrates from the potato BUT since they were fried they also contain fat.

#2. Do I remember correctly that carbohydrates and protein are about 4 kcal/g and fat is about 9 kcal/g. If those aren't exactly, correct them and do the following:

35 x 4 = ?? kcal from carbs.

15 x 9 = ?? kcal from fat.

5 x 4 = ?? kcal from protein.

Add them for the total.

#3 I'll leave for you. This should be in your text and or notes.
