  • Question about the example portion of patents

    Posted by Bobalooey on April 26, 2024 at 12:03 pm

    Hi, I’d like to get clarification about reading the example formulas shown in google patents. It appears as though there are multiple formulations shown, as denoted by the columns. The rows appear to be the ingredient percentages used in each potential formula displayed. However, some columns appear to have two different quantities shown for the same ingredient. (I’ve attached a picture to demonstrate.) I’m assuming that the uppermost number represents the actual amount to use but I don’t know what the number underneath it represents. Plus, not all ingredients show more than one amount. Could someone help clarify this for me? Thanks!

    I’d advise you to check the pdf version instead. What you see as two numbers, is just due to the use of two decimals in those numbers.

      Thank you so much! So basic … definitely falls into the “duh” category 😆
