A cow weighing 1317 slug can yield10% steak. Steak may contain 5.8 % fat. How many milligrams of fat can you get from 0.548 slug of steak? (1 slug = 14.59 kg) Answer in units of mg

I started the conversion by converting slugs to kg, but I didn't know what to do after that...

  • Chemistry -

    fat=slugs*steak/slug*fat/steak
    = 1317*.1 *.058 slugs of fat

    now convert slugs to kg, then kg to mg

  • Chemistry -

    120
