Hi...I am using a triple beam scale to weight 3 yards of yarn. In this example the 3 yards = .15 grams. How many yards are in 49.6 grams of the same yarn? My math came up with 992 yds. Is this correct?

You are near the precision limit of your scale though. If the weight varied ± 0.01 g, the answer would vary from 930  1063 yd, so don't assume excessive precision here.

Thank you so much for the reply...and the information on how precise the scale may be. Can you think of a better way to figure out the yardage...should I measure a longer piece, or would that not help?
