Worksheet Overview

A word formula is an instruction explaining how to work something out.



Here is a word formula to work out the cooking time (in minutes) for roast beef.  Using this formula, the beef will come out cooked "medium".



Cooking Time in minutes = Weight in kg x 30

For how long should a 3 kg joint of beef be cooked?



The weight is 3 kg, so ....

Cooking Time = 3 x 30 = 90 minutes
