the Quarter Pounder equation

I am not a big fan of McDonald's Restaurant. However, I do eat in McDonald's. Particularly at the time when I am in a unfamiliar place and don't feel like to try something I am not familiar with.

In Melbourne, I had McDonald's Double Quarter Pounder for lunch one day. There's the photo from the inside of Quarter Pounder package.

Quarter Pounder

So, there's the quarter pounder equation:
(18,000,000 x 2.2) x 4 = ( (Mmmmmmmmmmmm)3 x 108 )10

This equation is not that hard, but I guess I am too lazy to figure out Mmmmmmmmmmmm. Don? By the look of it, I have a feeling that Mmmmmmmmmmmm is a very small number.

In case you are interested in the writing, it says:

If there are 2.2 pounds in a kilogram and McDdonald's Australia bought 18,000,000 kilogram of beef last year, how many Quarter Pounders is that? Well?
Maybe you should just get back to your burger. But think about this - all of that 100% pure beer came from Aussie farmers; like Will Abel-Smith, whose family company has been farming beef across Australia for 120 years. So when it comes to our beef, it's Australia Day, every day, at McDonald's.

Sorry for the messy looking burger box, it was used for my Quarter Pounder.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm = 0.0040425789, as calculated on a TI-83.


Personally I'd have taken the lazy way out and assumed "Mmmmmmmmmmmm" to be a pseudonym for the proper roman numeral, xMM, for 12000.

The chickens of the remote village salute McDonalds for keeping them safe.

Rev. Dr. Wu Yi,
McDonald's is also famous for its McNuggets.

Sorry, Rev. Dr. The usage of < and > triggers HTML formatting codes, which were then stripped. I fixed them.

I did this at maccas to day, then googled it to see if anyone else has. there are 12 Ms, and i treated each one as a seperate pro numeral. M equals about 0.08459. I posted the whole equation on my bebo here: http://www.bebo.com/BlogView.jsp?MemberId=8351729032&BlogId=8501458413
