    you should use fractions. Dimensional analysis is basically just crossing out units that cancel when you multiply fractions. Here is an example \[(8meters/second)(60 seconds/1\min)= 8 meters/\min\] to convert from meters per second to meters per min. you multiple the two fractions and get rid of the units that cancel out.
