    Okay, so I'm trying to figure out the salter scale, but I'm a little confused :confused:. I was measuring some dip, and it says 33grams is 5carbs, but when i got the amount I wanted and weighed, I only go 24grams. How do I figure out how many carbs are in the 24grams I got?

    It is 3.65 carbs so I would call it a four. I divided the number of carbs (5) by the weight (33). This gives you 0.152. Multiply that by the weight you actually want to eat (24) and that gives you 3.65 carbs. Hope that helps!

    I just did this with cereal today, and I think I got it right.

    5 / 33 = .1515 carbs per gram of dip. You can check this by multiplying it back: .1515 carbs x 33 grams = 4.995 carbs, round that up to 5.

    Now that you know there are .1515 carbs per gram of dip.

    Multiply .1515 times your serving size of 24 grams:

    .1515 x 24 = 3.636 carbs. If your comfortable, you can round it up to 4.

    I'm no math wiz, but that's what I do when I need to figure different serving sizes.
