= 22 ounces
Deglazed weight = - 20 ounces
Weight of glaze =
(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.
of Sample = 22/2.00000 = Weight of Glaze in Sample
Result = .0909
09.0900 = Percentage of glaze
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
(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.
