    I need an answer to this.

    How would you convert 775 ounces/week to cg/minutes?

    And what is "cg" short for?

    I just need confirmation on my answer(s), but saying how you figured it out would obviously help and be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Are you sure it's "cg" and not "kg" (kilograms).

    It says cg.

    Maybe that was something my professor made up?

    It looks like it's a little-used metric measurement of mass, the centigram.

    Oh.

    Based on further calculations, my answer appears to be correct, but I'm going to ask him tomorrow before the test. My answer was 218.4.

    That is not what I get, but close. Recheck your arithmetic.
