Syn Questions

If my book says 10g butter is 3.5 syns if I only have 5g do I count it as half for example, I mean this as a general question, if you divide the portion down or up do you just divide the syns equivalently?

One of the sauces I use is 340mls of water to 85grams of powder, the online calculator for this product says "made up as directed, 100ml " is 4 syns so am I right in calculating that to make 340mls is 14 syns in total and if I have half the portion I need to count 7 syns?

Sorry I just want to make sure the way I am calculating things is correct?

That's what I usually do, yeah. For your sauce, I make it 13.6 syns, I guess you've rounded it up?

I work it as (syns in book) divided by (amount in book), times by (amount I'm using), if that makes sense.

So if something was, for example, 3 syns per 28g and I was using 80g, it would be 6 divided by 28 (0.10714.....) times by 80 = 8.57 (8.5) syns.

Hope that makes sense.. and is right!
Thanks Laura, just wanted to make sure it was ok to do it that way!
