## anonymous one year ago DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS 0.035mg=____cg

1. anonymous

what the monkey is a cg?

2. anonymous

all i can help with is to convert $$0.35$$ mg to grams, move the decimal over 3 places to get $0.000035$ grams

3. anonymous

centigram. I always solve these types of problems by multiplying by fractions. In this case$0.035 \text{ mg} \times \frac{1 \text{cg} }{\_ \text{mg} } = \_\text{cg}$

4. anonymous

oh is a cg one hundredth of a gram?

5. anonymous

Do you know how many milligrams there are in a centigram. Recall that milli means 0.001 and centi means 0.01

6. anonymous

thats the part i dont know

7. anonymous

i know how to multiply the fractions, but not what the conversions are

8. anonymous

mill is thousand, c is hundred that is all

9. anonymous

Well, if milli means 0.001 (1/1000) and centi means 0.01 (1/100) how many milli does it take to make one centi?

10. anonymous

$\frac{ 0.01 }{ 0.001 } = ?$
