# The food labels given below give information about 2 types of soup: cream of tomato and sweet corn. Use these labels to answer the given questions. (All the servings are based on a 2000 calorie diet.)Which can be measured more accurately: the total amount of fat in cream of tomato soup or the total amount of fat in sweet corn soup? Explain.

Given, the serving size of 1 cup of sweet corn = 240ml

Also, total fat = 2g on 2%

Now, we know x% of n =

2% of fat in sweet corn of 1 cup (with 2 servings per container) =

=

= 4.8g

For one serving =

= 2.4g

Given, serving size of 1 cup of cream of tomato = 240ml

Also, total fat = 2g on 3%

Now, we know x% of n =

3% of fat in cream of tomato of 1 cup (with 2 servings per container) =

=

= 7.2 g

For one serving =

= 3.6g

Hence, sweet corn soup can be compared more accurately.

Since, 2.4g is nearest to 2g when compared to 3.6g to 3g.
