I was eating a packet of pistachios the other day. The packet said extra 10% of 40g of pistachios.
That made me wonder. How many pistachios am I getting for free? Exactly how many pistachios are 4 grams? (that’s 10% of 40g just in case you can’t do really basic math) So I got out my mom’s weighing scale. The smallest measurement is 10g so I weighed 10 pistachios.
Count. There are ten.
It reads 15-20g by the way. If this was written four years ago, I would have started with all the physics terms and calculating errors. But no, this is 4 years after that, where everything physics knowledge I have has been returned to the books.
So, let’s just take it as 15g – mom argues it is, though I feel it’s 20g – that would mean 1 pistachio is 1.5g. meaning I’m getting something like 2 pistachios in 4g. Uh…am I supposed to be delighted? Yay! 2 free pistachio nuts!
On a separate occasion:
I wondered at first, why stuff I put in the bag is outside the bag. Duh. Is this what you call a plastic bag?
