# I just ate an entire box of chocolate cadbury fingers watch

Announcements
1. A portion of 4 fingers is 7% of the recommended daily intake of sugar, or 6.4g. One box contains 9 portions. How much of my daily recommended amount of sugar did I just consume?
2. So in pure mathematical terms your problem is

7*9=x

solve for x.

surely it would be 6.4g multiplied by 9? but i cant work out what the percentage is?

If 1 portion is 7% and there are 9 portions in the box, then your total is

7+7+7+7+7+7+7+7+7 = 7*9 % = 63%

ok i dont get how you worked that out but thanks. i thought it would be 200000%.

feel sick. shouldn't have eaten so much.

edit: no wait, that doesn't sound right. surely it's 6.4 grams multiplied by 9 and then you calculate the percentage?
im fairly sure you cant multiply percentages.
6. I once ate an entire tub of roses chocolates after a steaming hot Indian curry.

I must have eaten 10,000 calories that day.

Never again.
7. Ironically so did I a few hours ago, I had the milk & white chocolate ones

Well what is the GDA (Guideline Daily Amount) of sugar?

Do (57.6g/GDA)*100

i feel stuffed.
and i told myself i would only eat 2 portions (8 fingers) at the most every day until it was finished should have known it was never going to happen.

Use a calculator. Or Google. Google will do that calculation for you. Don't be lazy

Really, did you eat anything else as well? A box doesn't really fill me up tbh, I finished mine in like 5 mins lol. We both need to be more astute in the art of self-control I guess
17. You've just ruined chocolate finger fantasy by talking about maths lol

Time to work out how to use one then isn't it. The world is a big scary place. No one out there will help you.
