Glazed weight

= 22 ounces

Deglazed weight = - 20 ounces

Weight of glaze =

2 ounces

(2) To determine the percentage of glaze in the sample, divide the weight of

glaze in sample (2 ounces) by the glazed weight of the sample (22 ounces), the actual

weight. Then, multiply the result by 100 and change to percentage. Round to the

nearest tenth of a percent.

Rounded to nearest tenth = 09.1

Percentage of glaze = 9.1%

c. **Example of Calculations (Net Weight of a Case). **The net weight of fish

flesh for an entire case is determined as follows. (The example used is the same one

that is used above in "b".)

(1) To determine the glazed weight (actual weight) of the case of fish steaks,

subtract the weight of the tare from the gross weight of the case.

Gross weight = 56.00 pounds

Tare weight = - 2.50 pounds

Glazed weight = 53.50

of case

(actual weight)

(2) To determine the amount of glaze in the entire case of fish steaks,

multiply the glazed weight of the case by the percentage of glaze of the sample. Before

multiplying, change the percentage of glaze back to decimal form (moving the decimal

two places to the left). Round the product to the nearest hundredth of a pound.
