Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The idea is to use the units of a number to figure out the operation you need to use to get a value with the units you want. For example, if you have a speed (50 miles per hour) and a time (2 hours), you can find the distance traveled by noticing that hours is in the denominator of the speed. So, if you multiply the speed and the time together, the unit of hours cancels and you are left with a unit of miles (distance).
