A caterer for a wedding reception wants to use a recipe for eggplant salad that recommends using 1.8 kg of eggplant for 10
guests. However, in her area, eggplant is only sold by the pound. If 180 guests are expected, how many pounds of eggplant should the caterer purchase?

  180 guests / 10 guests/recipe =   18 recipes

 

18 recipes  x  1.8 kg/recipe = 32.4 kg

 

32.4 kg   x    2.2 lb/kg   = 71.28   pounds of eggplant

Hi there...

A rough estimate would be 72 pounds.

'Cause it's always better to be on the safe side when cooking.

But 71.43 pounds is more on point, since 1 pound equals 0.453592370kg.


I hope that helped...


Kind regards...
