Math: Homework Check!
posted by Lauren on .
Can you check to see if my answers are correct. If wrong please explain why.
1. 3 ft = 36
L  S x (largest to smallest)
THINK: 1 ft = 12 in
2. 72 in = 2 yd
THINK: 36 in = 1 yd
S  L / (/ means divide)
3. 93 ft. = 31 yd
THINK: 3 ft = 1 yd
S  L /
4. 500 yd = 1500 ft
THINK: 1 yd = 3 ft.
L  S x
5. 84 in = 84 ft.
THINK: 12 in = 1 ft
S  L /
6. 9 ft = 108 in
THINK: 1 ft = 12 in
L  S x
7. 5 mi = 8750 yd
THINK: 1 mi = 1, 750
L  S x
8. 52,800 ft. = 52,800 mi
THINK: 5,280 ft = 1 mi
S  L /
9. 144 in = 144 ft
THINK: 12 in = 1 ft
S  L /
Are these correct???????????

5, 7, 8, and 9 are wrong.
Please rethink these problems.
Note that 1 mile = 1,760 yards. 
Ok. When I'm done fixing those problems then I'll post it to see if I'm correct.

5. 84 in = 7 ft.
THINK: 12 in = 1 ft
S  L /
7. 5 mi = 8800 yd
THINK: 1 mi = 1, 750
L  S x
8. 52,800 ft. = 10 mi
THINK: 5,280 ft = 1 mi
S  L /
9. 144 in = 2 ft
THINK: 12 in = 1 ft
S  L /
Is my answers are correct????? 
i mean 1 mi  1, 760
srry about that
are these all correct??? 
All are correct except for 9.

OK.
To change from smaller units to larger units, DIVIDE.
15 ft = 5 yd
THINK: 1 ft = 12 in
4 x 12 = 48
4 ft = 48 in
That was an example.
I divide 144 by 12 which is 2. 
Right.
Lauren  you initially missed 4 of 9 problems. Those were mostly careless errors. That is not acceptable for an A student!! 
How come is wrong???? I'm pretty sure it's correct.

Wait a second I wasn't guesting or putting careless answer that what I thought it was because I got a bit confused!!!!!!!!!

How can you divide 144 by 12 and get 2?

because 12 x 2 = 144
it's not that hard. 
oh never mind it's 12 srry about that/

now it's correct,
thank you
