Mathematics for Commercial Foods.
A review of basic mathematics operations is presented with problems and examples applied to activities in the food service industry. The text is divided into eight units: measurement, fractions, arithmetic operations, money and decimals, percentage, ratio and proportion, wages and taxes, and business records. Each unit contains a series of lessons which follow the format of stated objectives, background information, demonstration or procedure, and assignments. Recipes, guest checks, tax forms, and inventory sheets accompany many of the lessons and serve as worksheets for doing the assignments. A conversion chart showing the number of ounces necessary to make tablespoons, cups, pints, and quarts for many foods is included. (KJ)
