weight (American): oz (ounces), lbs (pounds), tons

legth (American): inches, feet, yards, miles

Metric follows rules of 10. Kilo, hecta, deca, base, deci, centi, mili. (King Henry Died By Drinking Chocolate Milk.) Kilometers = 1000 m. Hectameters= 100 m. Decameters= 10 m. Base= meters. Decimeters= .1 meter. Centimeters= .01 m. Milimeters= .001 m.

#### how to solve for variables

Specifcially how do you solve for pi when there is a square root in the problem

1/3*pi*2*sqrt6*4

Asked by Collins from Richmond, VA

(1/3)*(3.14)*2*sqrt(6)*4 = 20.5

Order of operations does not aply here since each factor is being multiplied.

#### how do i find a path "six moves long"

my daughter is in 5th grade and doing a worksheet on Ordering Decimals. One of the ? is FInd a path "six moves long" Not sure how to tell her how to do that?

Asked by Chera from Noblesville, IN

If you can give an example from the book or worksheet, it will be much easier to answer your question. I also have not heard the term "6 moves long," but I think it might relate directly to a classroom activity, not necessarily a common math term.

#### counterexample

If the perimeter of a rectangle is 14 inches, then its area is 10 square inches.

Asked by Julie from Waldorf, MD

Julie, you will see the term "counterexample" throughout the year. It means to provide an example that proves the hypothosis false. For example, "All bunnies have ears. Fluffy has ears. Therefore Fluffy is a bunny." The counterexample is that fluffy could be any animal with ears that is not a bunny, such as a dog.

David provided a great example for your perimeter/area question, but I wanted to make sure you knew other questions will come up using this same logic/reasoning.

#### how do I factor a trinomial that has a value greater than 1 in the x squared term?

the problem is:

4x^2 + 12x + 9

You can also learn the quadradic formula. It will never let you down, and you have to learn it eventually. :) Check out the video on you-tube for a memory trick/song.
