Hello again! Right now in class we are working on Conversion problems! We are learning how to figure them out and how to write them. So I am going to give you the Conversion problem that I have made up.
Conversion problem: Today I went for a walk. I walked 15,000ft, how many miles did I walk?
how you figure this out is: (15,000ft/1) (1mi/5280ft) = (15,000/5280) = 2.8miles
What I did is you take how many feet you walk and put it over 1, then you take how many feet are in a mile (which is 5280) then you put that over 1mile and then you multiply the top and the bottom and you should get a fraction then you divide the top by the bottom and thatâ€™s how you get the answer!!
