When you are rounding out to the nearest inch. * * * * * Very funny! If the length is between (x-0.25) inches and (x+0.25) inches it will be rounded to x inches.
It is the length of an object, where the measurement is rounded to the nearest 0.5 inches.
Yes, of course, you lose more precision if you round to a half inch. Try rounding 0.76 to the nearest half unit, and to the nearest quarter unit, and see what happens.
The nearest one quarter inch of an object that measures 4 inches is four inches.
distance perimeter of an object height of an object, and length of an object
There are 100 centimeters in a meter. The second student (y) would be more accurate.
length=7.5 inches this is only correct if the object is a rectangle.
Length is the distance between the positions of the ends of an object measured at the same time.
The volume of any object is measured in cubic units of length - whatever the shape of the object. The only thing that might change are the units of length themselves: if you are imperial minded, then the volume of a model pyramid would be measured in cubic inches, that of the Egyptian or Central/South American ones would be in cubic yards. If you are SI minded, then you will prefer cubic centimetres or cubic metres.
Length, Width, Height, Volume, Mass, Weight
36inches. you multiply length by width to get the area of a 2d object
