If you divide the 21 calories by the 5 m&m’s, you get 4.2 calories per m&m. 4.2 x 54 =226.8. How did you get 230?

1. Bill,

Thank you for the comment. I originally just put 230 because it was on the package. I just changed the act 2 image to say that 5 M&M’s are 21.3 calories. That should work now. Double check me though!
