The denominator must contain the unit that you wish to cancel in the numerator of the other number.
It is the units for the measurement which you are converting FROM.
These are the units which are used for the measurement that you are converting FROM.
The unit that is used in the denominator is the one to cancels the unit that appears in a numerator.
It must be the unit of the measurement that you are converting FROM.
The unit itself isn't important, because dimensional analysis works on the principle that multiplying a number by 1 leaves it unchanged. In this case, the conversion factor simply acts as the "1", or equivalent or what you're trying to convert but with different units. As a general way of thinking about this, the denominator unit should just be able to cancel itself out so that you get a new unit which would be the numerator. To do this, the conversion factor should be multiplied by the unit in its denominator. For example, if you know that a substance is 1 gram per cubic centimeter, you'll multiply it by a conversion factor which has grams in the denominator. When the units in a denominator multiply by the units of a numerator, they cancel out so your new answer is in cubic centimeters. You can also flip the conversion factors around to make it work, based on the values of the units that you know.
Assuming you are talking about stoichiometery a conversion factor is often a number with two units. For example a conversion factor could be Miles per hour (Miles/hour). If you had miles and needed to convert to hours you would multiply the miles by Hours/miles so that the miles would be canceled out (miles/miles = 1). Then your units left would be hours. Or vice versa. There are other factors like this in chemistry like grams/mol Mol/liter etc. To put it shortly the conversion factor denominator is always paired with the numerator.
The numerator must contain the unit INTO which you are converting.
The denominator must have a prime factor other than 2 and 5.
It is the unit of the measurement which you are converting FROM.
No. It would be very unusual for a conversion factor to equal one.
A fraction with denominator 10 must have an odd numerator for otherwise its numerator and denominator would have 2 as a common factor and it would be simplified so that it would no longer have 10 as a denominator. So you are adding two odd numerators, both with 10 as the denominator. The sum of two odds is always even, so the result will be an even sum with 10 as the denominator. So in the answer, 2 is a common factor of the numerator and denominator and the answer can be simplified. If there is no other common factor, then the answer must have a denominator of 5.
A non-terminating repeating number must be rational. When its fractional part is in its simplest form, the denominator must have a prime factor other than 2 or 5.
The measurements must be equal to each other.
It is 1.
The conversion factor, for converting from UNITA to UNITB is the number of UNITB in each UNITA. There are 3.2808 feet in 1 metre so the conversion factor for converting metres into feet is 3.2808.
The measurements must be equal to each other.
Divide the numerator and the denominator by the same number to simplify a fraction. This number must be a common factor of the numerator and the denominator. For example, 50 is a common factor of the numerator and denominator of 350/400. By dividing each by 50, 350/400 can be simplified to 7/8.
No. To simplify a fraction the numerator and denominator must have a common factor greater than 1.
For a fraction to be in its simplest form, numerator and denominator must have no common factor.
1. They must always be true 2. They must always equal 1.
The phrase 'conversion factor' means factor by which a quantity that is expressed in one set of units must be multiplied in order to convert it into another set of units Another answer is Dividing the number of servings you want to make by the number of servings the recipe makes.
When reducing fractions to their simplest form the greatest common factor of their numerator and denominator must be found.
To simplify a fraction, the numerator and denominator must both be divisible by the same number (factor).Divide the numerator and the denominator by their GCF (greatest common factor). For example, to simplify the fraction 14/49, divide the numerator and the denominator by 7 to obtain the simplified fraction 2/7.In the simplest form of a fraction, the numerator and denominator are relatively prime or co-prime, i.e. they have no common prime factors, their GCF is 1.
