Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we have 256 place a decimal point between the first two digits (2 and 5) to get 2.56 how many spots must we move the decimal to get back to 256 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2`6 L = 6000 mL` I think you meant to say?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2go to this link for the basic template http://www.notredameacademy.ca/docs/homework/Lesson%201a%20%20Metric%20Ladder%20Powerpoint.pdf start at the "basic unit" block. In this case, it's grams then move until you get to the "kilo" block. Count out the number of spaces and take note of the direction you move

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you move the decimal point in `1.3` three places to the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but you don't need the zeroes in this case?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what do you mean?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Never mind. Do you need to add zeroes if you move to the left, because I did that for every problem like it?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes as you move the decimal point to the left, you will have 0s in between so `1.3` turns into `0.13` after moving the decimal point once to the left then we will have `0.013` after 2 moves to the left then we will have `0.0013` after 3 moves to the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes if you leave them out then you'd get back to 0.13 or something
