how do you convert 7.02mg to dg

This Question is Open

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 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) :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I have a quiz on Tuesday which is on converting factor and density which I am bad at

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so here's what you need to know. There are 1,000 milligrams in a gram.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And there are 10 grams in a decigram, so there are 10000 milligrams in a decigram.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Honestly... I have NO idea... I just used an online converter for that one. Let me find you a formula. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@misaki12 you mean decigrams right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 1 decigram }{ 100 miligrams }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1always 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[7.02 miligrams *\frac{ 1 decigram }{ 100 miligrams }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Misaki12 see how I did this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so instead of the 1000 milligram I should use 100mg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@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.
