This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.
Unit Conversion Problem
So in math class we are working on unit conversions. For part of our homework we had to create our own problem. I thought I should share it with you!
I ran 82 miles in a week. How many hours per kilometer is this?
So for this problem it is a two step because you have to change miles to feet and week to hours. So will first start off with changing miles to kilometers. This is how it looks like. Since we want miles to reduce we want to put miles on the bottom and km on the top. Since 1000m goes into 1km. This is how it looks like
1 week 1000m
