So mg means milligrams and dg means decigrams. How much smaller is a milligram than a gram? Do you know? (I want to make sure I'm not just giving you the answer) :)

no that why I need help

can you please help?

I'm here! :)

- anonymous

so I have a quiz on Tuesday which is on converting factor and density which I am bad at

- anonymous

Okay, so here's what you need to know. There are 1,000 milligrams in a gram.

- anonymous

And there are 10 grams in a decigram, so there are 10000 milligrams in a decigram.

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

\[7.02mg*1dg/1000\]

- anonymous

so the answer will be 0.00702dg

- anonymous

yes or no

- anonymous

It should be! :)

- anonymous

cool
okay next one is 0.600m to Ft

- anonymous

1.9685 feet

- anonymous

okay but how do I solve it

- anonymous

Honestly... I have NO idea... I just used an online converter for that one. Let me find you a formula. :)

- anonymous

So 1 meter = 3.28 feet.

- anonymous

okay

@misaki12 you mean decigrams right?

- Photon336

Well if so always start from the conversion factor ask yourself
mg = miligrams
dg = decigrams
We are asked to convert 7.02 mg to decigrams right?

- Photon336

\[\frac{ 1 decigram }{ 100 miligrams }\]

- Photon336

always ensure that the factor you want to cancel out is in the denominator and that's milligrams. we have 7.02 milligrams so that's why we set up the conversion factor with milligrams in the denominator

- Photon336

\[7.02 miligrams *\frac{ 1 decigram }{ 100 miligrams }\]

- anonymous

that what i did

|dw:1442548698684:dw|

- Photon336

@Misaki12 see how I did this?

- anonymous

okay so instead of the 1000 milligram I should use 100mg

- anonymous

okay

- Photon336

@Misaki12, you see why I set it up that way right? how the milligrams cancel out and I'm left with decigrams in the end, that's the point of dimensional analysis, always look for the conversion factor first and ensure that the unit you want to get rid of is in the denominator while the unit you want in this case decigrams is in the numerator.

okay

- anonymous

thank you

No problem, welcome to open study

thank you
