Question Math Question

How many Gallons are in a case of Beer?

Each Case has 24 can's, @ 355ML per can.

How do you figure this out?

I hate it when they insult your intelligence like that. Why not be straightforward and raise the price? But don't play games with me!

Used to be when an entire 1 lb. package of pasta could feed a family of six. Now, all of a sudden, I'm lucky if it feeds three. I wonder if they're weighing it different? Name:  think006.gif

2.2506339814032121724429416737109 gallons in a case of beer.

24 cans X 355 ML in a can / 3785.6 ML in a gallon

or you can weigh yourself, then drink a gallon of water (you can use a measuring cup or an empty gasoline can), and weigh yourself again. Subtract your beginning weight from your ending weight to get the weight of a gallon of liquid. Then weigh yourself again (Caution: You should go to the bathroom before you do this). Then drink beers from your case until you gain the amount of a gallon of liquid determined in step one. Once you have done this, go to the bathroom again. Then begin drinking again until you gain the desired weight. Do it one more time. You will not be able to complete the third gallon. Take the weight gain the last time and divide it by the weight you determined for one gallon of liquid. This will give you the fraction to add to the first two gallons. You should get the same answer as the original calculation. I highly recommend this latter method over the purely math method. The first method is quite abstract. This latter method gives you a real feel for working with liquid measurements and weights and it is a lot more fun. Try it! Invite friends over and you can have a little science class. See who can get the closest to the theoretical answer. Award the winner a case of beer.

Yeah, that's been the case (no pun!) for most of the German imports. We need a redo of Operation Overlord.

Why not just pour the damn beer down the toilet and avoid the middle-man?
