A Standardized Formula*
Purchase X number of svg needed X svg size needed
Units for number of svg listed    svg size listed =
100 Svgs                            (FBG Col. 4)
(Col. 5)

(A)                             (B)                         (C)

QUANITY NEEDED
(D)

*Formula developed with the guidance of Dr. E.L. Miller,
Professor of Mathematics, University of Mississippi
Corn, Whole Kernel, vacuum packed,
Step 2:                  #10 cans
A. Purchase units for 100 svgs
(FBG Column 5) = 3.0 # 10 cans
B. # servings needed = 460 = 4.6
# servings listed    100
C. Svg size needed = ½ cup = .50 = 2
Svg size listed   ¼ cup .25
D. Quantity needed:
(a) 3.0 X (b) 4.6 X (c) 2 = (d) 27.6 # 10 cans
Step 3:
27.6 #10 cans needed = 28 cans
Ex: Ground Beef, 20% fat
Step 2:
A. Purchase unit for 100 servings
(FBG column 5) = 8.5 lbs/100 1-oz svgs
B. #svgs needed = 230 = 2.3
# svgs listed = 100
C. Svg size needed = 2 oz = 2
Svg size listed    1 oz
D. Quantity needed:
(a) 8.5 X (b) 2.3 X (c) 2 = (d) 39.1 lbs
Ex: Crinkle-Cut French Fries
Step 2:
A. Purchase unit for 100 svgs
(FBG column 5) = 8.0 lbs
B. # servings needed = 380 = 3.8
# servings needed    100
C. Svg size needed = 1/2 cup = .50 = 2
Svg size listed     ¼ cup       .25
D. Quantity needed:
(a) 8.0 X (b) 3.8 X (c) 2 = 60.8 lbs
Ex: Green Peas, frozen
Step 2:
A. Purchase unit for 100 svgs
(FBG column 5) = 10.5 lbs
B. # servings needed = 330 = 3.3
# servings needed 100
C. Svg size needed = 1/2 cup = .50 = 2
Svg size listed     ¼ cup    .25
D. Quantity needed:
(a) 10.5 X (b) 3.3 X (c) 2 = 69.3 lbs
