Can the values be added or subtracted? If one value needs to be converted to another, describe the conversion.
19.75 in² + 26.2 in³
A.
The values cannot be added because one is measuring area and the other is measuring volume.
B.
The values can be added without making a conversion of units because they both measure area.
C.
The values can be added after making a conversion of units because they both measure area.
D.
The values cannot be added because one is measuring area and the other is measuring mass.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one of these equations, the one with in^2, measures area, while in^3 measures volume. Does this help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so the first equation is a measure of, for example, how much carpet would cover a room, or area. The second equation is a measure of, for example, how much stuff could fit in a box, or volume. The two cannot be added because they are measuring two different spatial quantities. any better?
