MATH PRINCIPLES FOR FOOD SERVICE OCCUPATIONS, 6E stresses the direct relevance of math skills in the food service industry while teaching the basic math principles that affect everything from basic recipe preparation to managing food and labor costs in a restaurant operation. All the mathematical problems and concepts presented are explained in a simplified, logical, step-by-step manner. New to this edition, illustrations in full color add visual appeal to the text and help you master important concepts. Now in its 6th edition, this book demonstrates the importance of understanding and using math concepts to effectively make money in this demanding business. Part 1 explains how to use a calculator. Part 2 reviews basic math fundamentals. The following parts address math essentials and cost controls in food preparation and math essentials in food service record keeping, while the last part of the book concentrates on managerial math.
