Yes!!! :-) You're doing great!
The metric measure for Frosted Flakes is 652 grams. The metric measure for the medicine is 10 milograms each.
So a measurement for a room in my house for example:
A bath room 8X10 feet
or
A pillow 10X12 inches?
Would this be correct?
Feet and inches are not part of the metric system. If you have a meter stick or tape measure, you could measure the bathroom in meters. You could measure the pillow in centimeters.
So for the pillow I can put 25X30 mm?
For the lenght, width I can use millimeter, centimeter, meter or kilometers?
That's a mighty small pillow. 25 by 30 millimeters is about the size of a postage stamp. The pillow is about 25 by 30 centimeters. A standard bed pillow is about 45 by 65 centimeters.
Yes. Length is measured in millimeter, centimeter, meter or kilometers.
I urge you to get a ruler or meter stick or tape measure that has both metric and English measurments.
A rancher has 200 feet of fencing with which to enclose two adjacent rectangular corrals. What measurements will produce a maximum enclosed area?
If you are to list them only, I think what you have done is ok. The frosted flakes box contains 23 oz which is the same as 1 lb 7 oz which is the same as 652 grams.
One Zyrtec tablet contains 10 mg of the active ingredient (each tables does not weigh 10 mg; usually fillers are added).
For Zytrec the Quantity measured is the mass ("weight") and the unit will be milligrams. I am going by the information I have. Is this the correct understanding?
Yes, I think you are correct. I don't have a bottle at home so I can't check it out; however, I think the 10 mg is the active ingredient and not the weight of the individual tablet/capsule.
Yes you are right. It say cetirizine HCI/ antihistamine 10 mg tablets. But could I still use this as one of my answers?
