    Which exercise(s)? So I can go back and see where I went wrong.

    What about post #17 that I edited with corrections. Does that one look off as well? If so, I may have to rethink my formulas for both.

    TIA

    @Free Spirit the numbers in #17 are very close. [​IMG] Hint... the number of mg of amprolium in the 0.24% gallon is over 900, but less than 960.

    @casportpony I believe I figured it out now. I know where I went wrong. I should have never converted oz to mg to begin with and should have stuck to converting oz to ml to g at the onset.

    Please check my work and let me know if it looks better now. Posts # 17 and # 29. Both have been edited to reflect the changes.

    I did! I do like the metric systems as they are always more precise. But I was overcomplicating it. I tend to do that [​IMG] [​IMG]. Thanks for the challenge. It was fun, informative, and will be very useful.

    I've been doing all my calculating on scratch paper and putting the final details organized into a fresh notebook so it's right at my fingertips just in case I ever need them.

    Powders? - Bring it on ! [​IMG]
