  1. I've been doing the math for 20 min but just can't seem to get it right.

    I have 10 lbs of venison meat so how many lbs of fat do I need to add to get a 70/30 ratio.

    4 lbs is close but not exact

    4.28 lbs.
     
  3. Ok so

    14.3 x .30= 4.29.

    14.3- 4.29 = 10.01.

    Close enough for for me! Thanks.
     
  4. 10 Lbs venison divided by 7, times 10, minus the original 10 pounds = 4.28 lbs.

  6. Would 3oz be close enough to .28 lb?

    4.48 ounces would be exact, 3 ounces would be close enough, heck 4 lbs would be close enough for me.
