Bartleby the Scrivener


Scientists at the University of Idaho Parma Research and Extension Center in Parma, Idaho have determined that local potatoes contain 1.83% starch by mass. Bob's Red Mill will buy potatoes from Parma, Idaho to produce their Gluten Free Potato Starch. They want to produce 2.50x103 kg of potato starch. How many tons of potatoes should they purchase from the famers of Parma, Idaho? Assume that none of the starch is lost during the extraction process. (1 ton = 907.185 kg)
