# Evaluating ratio meat/fat

### From Mathematics Is A Science

Let's compute how lean is this piece of meat based entirely on the photograph.

Fortunately Pixcavator captures dark and light separately and the data is saved in a spreadsheet.

The amount of meat (red) is 35,350 pixels:

The amount of fat (green) is 8,931 pixels:

Conclusion: The proportion of fat to meat is about 1:4.

**Run this analysis** with Pixcavator SI.

A more realistic scenario is analyzed here: Evaluating ratio meat/fat 2.
