    hi,

    I'm having trouble with this one question on an assignment, i don't know the formula i should use.

    Hoping someone can assist.

    Question is:

    "One portion of a cuttlefish net yield equals 120g this equates to 43%, how many grams of Cuttlefish did I have before starting preparation"

    any assistance will be gratefully appreciated.

    Yields and recipe conversions are very important for a student to learn. Do not feel stupid for asking your instructor for help.

    120g divided by 43% = 279g
