Let me break it down for you. Try this experiment at home. Grab a measuring cup. 1 cup is 8 oz. The 8 oz does not refer to the weight. The 8 oz refers to the volume NOT MASS. Fill one cup with sugar and weigh it. Fill another cup with stones and weigh it. Though they are both equally 8 oz IN VOLUME they are not equal in weight. So please, if you don't know what you are talking about ...keep your answers to yourself. Your comments are rude and condescending and it actually makes you look dumb.
Alex this question is not directed toward you. I am asking a legitimate question. It is not my fault that someone failed you during your educational process. I am trying to find out how much and 8 oz cup of Wellness Fish and Sweet Potato weighs. Because each brand weighs differently. For example, one 8 oz cup (volume) of Premium Edge Skin and Coat weighs 3.3 ounces. Given this information I can determine how many cups are in one 40 lb bag.
I will apologize to you for getting mouthy..sorry. We just sometimes get bored kids online who do not really wish to know things and just want to waste our time. But I still stand with what I said...8oz equals 8oz depending on how weight it.
I did laugh at your question, but not because the math was wrong. Your absolutely right, ounces is a liquid mass measurement.
However, I laughed because isn't it funny the things we try to think of and figure out for our dogs?? I have no idea what weight the cup (cup meaning 8 fluid ouncez) of wellness is..... you can buy a $100 scale and find out!!! ha ha.... (and you know you'd do it too, for your doggie!!! me too!)
dobielover1 I tried the website route. No answers there. I am currently feeding Premium Edge and I feed 9 cups a day. If I fed Wellness I would only feed 7.5 cups. Each 8 oz cup (volume) of Premium Edge weighs 3.3 oz. So in my calculations each bag has close to 194 cups. So each bag would last me 21 1/2 days.
40 lbs = 640 oz (weight) 1 cup = 3.3 oz (weight) 640/3.3 = 193.9
So if I knew how much an 8 oz cup (volume) of Wellness weighed I would be able to figure out how many cups are in a 30 lb bag. If someone knew how many 8 oz cups (volume) are in a 30 lb bag it would also help me.
I currently feed 9 cups a day of Premium Edge. Each pound costs 78 cents. I would be feeding 7.5 cups of Wellness every day. If I knew how much each cup would cost me it would really help. I know that Wellness costs more per lb but I don't know how much a cup of Wellness weighs. See the picture?
Actually Premium Edge comes in 35 lb bags but each 8 oz cup still weighs 3.3 oz. Anyway if you have the answer to my question please let me know. I just found out today that if I feed Diamond Lamb and Rice vs Premium Edge Skin and Coat I will only save 3 dollars a month. So it is something to think about folks.
Well, I finally had a chance to look at the back of my empty bag. According to the Wellness Fish and Sweet Potato bag 1 cup = 4 oz. Hope it helps. If you feed Eagle Pack Holistic Anchovy, Sardine and Salmon 1 cup = 3.8 oz.
you know..I had to take alergba for my degree..well..a refresher math to even get ready for that...( back in my day they used abacuses...lol) any way..I tone right out when thinking or hearing math terms..its like LALALALALALA I just dont want to think of it ina ny way...and its sad..I know..but its like when adults talk to charlie brown...i just cant seem to make it out..
any way...I can see through this...but just wanted to share...
