## mikaa_toxica13 2 years ago what is the given amount converted to the given unit ? 195 s; minutes

1. Hero

$195 \space\text{seconds} \times \frac{\space\text{minutes}}{60 \space\text{seconds}}$

2. mikaa_toxica13

So I would multiply 195 and 60 ?

3. mikaa_toxica13

108 ft; inches 9 inches

10. Hero

You think that 108 ft = 9 inches?

11. Hero

This is why they teach dimensional analysis\conversion. $108\space\text{ft} \times \frac{12\space\text{in}}{\text{ft}} = (108)(12)\space\text{in}$

Uhmmm I don't think that came out how u wanted it too. I did the same thing I did on other problem and got 9 inches. It's one of the answers provided as well.

But you should know 108 doesn't equal 9 inches. You can get 9 inches on a little pocket ruler. But to get 108 ft, it would take you a while to measure that using a ruler.
