Hello there. In this problem, we are having some breakfast cereal and we are reading the nutritional content and we see that this serial per serving is 3 g of protein, 18 g of carbs, carbohydrates and 6 g of fat, and we want to calculate how many calories this will be. To do this, we need some information about how many calories there are program of each of these. This was given to us in the problem. For protein, there are 4.1 dietary calories. That's a big C, which is actually a kilo calorie for every gram of protein. This means that the calories from the protein is 12.3. The carbohydrates. They have a calorie content just like protein of 4.1 calories for every gram of the carbohydrates. Multiplying 18 times 4.1 gives me 73.8 calories due to the carbohydrates in this serial, and finally, the fat fat has a few more calories program that is 9.1 calories for every gram of fat. Doing. This calculation tells me that there are 54 0.6 calories from the fat in the cereal, so I have the different calorie contents for each of these the proteins, the carbs and fat to get the total calorie content, I'm gonna go ahead and simply add these together. So add adding these together and give me 1 40.7 calories. Um, it's like, go ahead, round 22 significant figures here and that will give me 1.4 times 10 to the second calories. So 100 about 140 calories in that bowl of breakfast cereal. Alrighty. Thank you so much.
