You take two measurements in a lab. The first measurement is in units called
zorbs. The second measurement is in different units called zargs. Both zorbs
and zargs have the same dimensions. Can you directly add these
measurements together? If not, what additional information do you need in order
to add them?
NO
Yes No

1.C.4

When multiplying by a conversion factor, how do you determine which unit
belongs in the numerator and which in the denominator?
The top numerator represents the equal parts; where as, the bottom
denominator makes up for the parts as a whole. When working with conversion
factors, the units to be cancelled out, should be represented in both the top
numerator and bottom denominator so that the desired outcome would be
represented in the end result.
