How do you calculate yards per gram using a kitchen scale that measures in ounces?

1 ounce= 28.3 grams

That’s helpful. So I would take the total yards and divide by 28.3 oz and that will give me how many yards per ounce right?

Oops she already responded

label yards / grams= yards per gram

ounces / 28.3 = grams remaining

grams remaining x yards per gram = yards remaining

that should be right

I don’t know, I’m second guessing myself

I know what the answer is, but I don’t know the right order to do it

50g ball of 200 yds is 4 yds per gram

you have 100 yds left, that would 25g

I think its ounces times 28.3 then divide by yard per gram

So you’re going larger to smaller

Ounces to grams

You multiply

1 oz=28.35g

I need to design a dyscalculia gif

it would look something like this

Yep! Gotta make fun of our flaws right?

I can usually get the answer, I just get mixed up on order or trying to explain it

I always hated the “show your work” part

I’m actually good at math, I just have to have it in front of me … Like I can tell you very quickly how many of a volume in another volume (tablespoons to cups) and switch between fractions and decimals but metric screws me up and trying to convert weights, yet converting money is easy

Brains are weird

Always hated the show your work and hated math teachers. Looking back on it, they may have known math but didn’t have a clue on how to teach it.

It wasn’t until I got to college with a math teacher targeted towards adult students that I finally got the percentages and decibels right. Don’t ask me about fractions tho.

I rock at accounting

Mortgages, financing, interest rates, budgeting. I spent half my life thinking I was bad at math because I had math teachers telling me so. I’m bad at the mystery math with letters. But chemistry, finances, cooking, sewing, and knitting math is easy for me

The mystery math with letters is Algebra. Ugh! Took it for entire 2 years in order to get my Bachelors Degree in Nursing. I had to pass College Algebra.

And here comes the person whose favorite subject was always math and my favorite math class was algebra

English is my 2nd language, so while i didnt understand english, numbers were super easy (specially cause math in the US is not as advanced as where i come from/ you learn stuff later in the US… So i already knew what i was being taught)

As I said earlier, I’m actually good at arithmetic. But mathematics involves concepts that I am incapable of grasping. For me it’s theoretical manipulation of numbers for no reason. Not an insult, that is literally how dyscalculia works, and it was not recognized by math teachers. (Or any teachers for that matter) until recently

I agree
