A reduced fat cookie vontains 6g of fat per serving. In order for food to be considered reduced fat, it must have at least 25% fat than the regular item. What can a person conclude about how much fat is in a serving of the regular cookie? How much fat does a serving of regular cookies contain?
I am lost and need some help with this problem. I say that it would be at least 5.3g.
Thanks.

    Do you mean "at least 25% LESS fat than the regular item?"
