20% crude protein if the mix is perfect.

1000 * .40 = 400
2000 * .10 = 200

600/3000=.20% CP

20.00% crude protein. Your decimals are off.

Technically you are correct. When you convert a number to percent the decimal has to be moved. Haven’t had to show my work since 5th grade. I need to keep the audience in mind when I post.

Thought it might be helpful to show someone HOW to do it instead of asking.

No just do it correctly. A lot of difference in .20% and 20%. ;-)
