Hmm give me an example and i can help.
OK to go from 8m to km I know to move the decimal, but I have to be able to show it with math.
1000 meter is 1 km therefore it will be 8/1000 km
1 cm = 2.54 inches 1 gal = 3.78 liters 1 inch = 25.4 millimeters. 1 liter = 33.8 ounces. 1 lb = 454 grams.
From a 8m to kilometers is as follows. 8m * 1km/1000meters meters cancel, leaving us with: = 8/1000km .008 km.
i see that but I'm not sure how it works.
Okay. So we know that in math, anything divided by 1 is itself. So let's call the first part of the is 8 m. Then we are going to multiply by 1/1000. There is 1 km for every 1000 meters. This is why we label the unit conversion this way. Next, we do the division of 8*1/1000 which is the same as 8/1000. When we do this we have: 8m km/1000 m. The fact that we have meters above and below allows us to cancel, leaving us with .008 km. Hope this helps. Please don't forget to mark good answer if it does. :) Sean
Would this work for any system? I am in a radiography program and have to convert between doses of radiation. Can I explain to you?
Sure. Go ahead and explain.
You still there?
