Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, what was your original question. Are you converting 560 mi/hr to cm/minute or the other way around?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Something that always helps me come up with conversion factors is this: Find out what's equal, so for example: \[1 \ hour = 60 \ minutes \] And then if I want to convert something from hours to minutes, I multiply like this in that equation: \[1 = \frac{ 60 \ minutes}{1 \ hour}\] So now I have a conversion factor, which is really equal to 1! Anything multiplied by 1 doesn't change, so similarly conversion factors don't change it either. So as an example, let's say I want to convert 3 hours to minutes? \[3 \ hours * 1 = 3 \ hours * \frac{ 60 \ minutes}{1 \ hour} \] \[ 3 \ \cancel{ hours} * \frac{ 60 \ minutes}{1 \cancel{ hour}} = 3*60 \ minutes = 180 \ minutes \]
