Ok I'm stumped on a formula calculation that deals with weighing "parts" ... (The formula reads like this... 2 parts to 1 part to 1/10 of a part) Below are the parts measured out in the exact grams I need but I'm concerned about the 1/10 and what the proper calculation works out to in grams??? 1) 200 grams 2) 100 grams 3) 1/10 = (???) grams I believe this is so easy, I'm confusing myself at this late hour... I calculated 1/10 of 200 grams = 20 grams ... is this correct??? (If this is in the wrong category please let me know where I should post this =)

While this topic could easily be correctly placed in either forum you used, I will leave this one and remove the other, since it does deal with mass. If 1 part is 100 grams, then 1/10 of a part would be 10 grams. You see, 200 grams is 2 parts, so we would need 1/20 of that to get 1/10 part, since 2(1/20) = 1/10. Does this make sense?

Of course... 1) 2 Parts (100 grams + 100 grams = "two parts" for a total of 200 grams) 2) 1 Part (100 grams = "one part") 3) 1/10 of a "part" = 10 grams! Was way over thinking this... Makes obvious sense after some much needed sleep - lol! Thanks!
