Zombie Maths 12: Mean, Median and Mode

December 13, 2011


Zombies don’t bleed but Hollywood keeps splattering Zombies in FAKE BLOOD in movies. So every Zombie must know the cost of FAKE BLOOD.

So much FAKE BLOOD seems to be sold in America we have to use American volumes:

1 US fl oz = 29.6 ml

1 US pint = 16 US fl oz =  473 ml

1 US gallon = 8 US pints = 3785 ml = 3.79 litres

These are approx values as  manufacturers round off conversions from fl oz to ml.

Mathspig found 3 types of fake blood out there but Halloween Blood, Stage Blood and Movie Blood.

.
