I Love Math!!!

I know; I'm a weird strange person like that, but it's true.  It's the same all over, never changes, constant, consistent:  A + B will always equal C.  The strange thing is that I never used to like math, until I got to high school and had that one teacher who changed my view and had a profound influence on my life.  And what she said is true, you will use math, to some degree, in your daily lives past high school.  Case in point = D-Math...

While out this afternoon on my lunch hour; I was walking through the Easter candy isle at the store and thought I would get a little something for Mike.  I saw the chocolate bunnies, in many varieties, including sugar free.  So, I picked up 2 bunnies; one regular and one sugar free.  Yay math in everyday life!!  1 + 1 = 2...  Sorry - back to the blog purpose...

The sugar free bunny is 2.5oz which equals 1 serving at 40grams of Carbs per serving.  The regular bunny is 3 oz which equals 2 servings at 25 grams of Carbs per serving (or 50 grams of Carbs for the whole bunny).  Now comes the fun part...  The mathematical breakdown...  Can you feel the drama?!?!

For each ounce of chocolate:  the sugar free bunny has 16 grams of Carbs per ounce and the regular bunny has 16.6666 grams of Carbs per ounce.  And what does this mean???  They are the same!!!!!  Or almost, with a .6666 difference.

Thought that was kinda interesting.
