Let me make it clear that I'm a moron in math, and thus, I'm also a moron in Physics at this point. I just bombed a quiz on converting Base units... so I really want some help. Please help me out, but if you dont know, dont act like you do. Thanks in advance.
C3PO weighs 200 ibs, convert his weight to metric kilograms.
1 kg = 2.2 ibs, so it's 2.2 ibs divided by 200 ibs, which equals 90.9, so C3PO weighs 90.9 kilograms?
Blue Snaggletooth stands 3 ft. tall, convert his height to millimeters.
1 ft. = 12 inches, so 12 times 3 (ft) is 36. So Blue Snaggletooth is 36 inches. 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters, so 2.54 centimeters multiplied by 36 inches is 91.44 centimeters. Slide the decimal to the right to convert centimeters to millimeters, making Blue Snaggletooth 914.4 millimeters tall?
A squad of Dewbacks patrol a 12 mile perimeter, convert the miles to kilometers.
1 mi. = 1.6 km, so 1.6 km multiplied by 12 mi is 19.2 km. The dewbacks patrolled 19.2 km?
Please let me know if I'm correct, if not, please correct me and explain. Thanks a lot.
