(I flunked math in high school-- Sorry I feel like an idiot asking this!!) Okay, I need to figure out the calories in a 1/4th cup shredded cheese. The serving size on the back says that 1/3rd cup is 110. So how do I figure out how much is in 1/4th instead of 1/3rd? Thanks! __________________ Mini Goal: 154 by Birthday 7/28/2015

1/3c = 100
1/4c= x

Solve for "c" in the first equation and then substitute "c" for "x" in the second.

Which is exactly what you did
