Default Please Check my point counting

I have a friend who uses a WW computer to count points.
His tally is '1' for a 'Cup of Noodles'.
Calories 300
grams fat 7
grams Fiber 2
He is having very severe vision problems, so he may be imputing
the computer incorrrectly.

I get 6.16 points.
300 cal, plus fat (4x13g)52= 352; minus fiber (2gx10)20=332; substract 24=
308; divide by 50=6.16
I hope someone can straighten me out? If I am in error at least I am erring
in the correct direction.
In advance, thanks, . . . .charlie.

No way in heck a "cup of noodles" is just 1 point.

I am not sure where you got your formula, but the formula is (http://
www.thefactsaboutfitness.com/research/diet.htm):
(calories/50) + (fat grams/12) - (min{r, 4}/5), which for the above
numbers, becomes:
(300/50) + (7/12) - (2/5)
6 + .58 - .4 = 6.18, and since point amounts are rounded to the nearest
whole number, you need to round it to 6.
