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.



Answer :

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.
