**Given if 2 fardells = 1 nooke 4nooke = 1 yard. 4yards = 1kide How many fardells are there in 6.00 life’s**

Given 2 fardells = 1 nooke

4 nooke = 1 yard

4 yards = 1 kide

How many fardells are there in 6.00 life's?

There is some information missing in this question. This is a dimensional analysis problem, and with the given info, you can convert from fardells into nookes, or into yards, or into kides. There is no info on the "life's" unit.

Dimensional analysis is a procedure used to convert from one unit into another if you know some equivalents, such as those in the problem. Dimensional analysis is based on the concept that if you multiply a quantity by 1, the quantity remains the same: 4 x 1 = 4 81.9 x 1 = 81.9 0.259 x 1 = 0.259

You can express the value "1" in different ways, such as 3/3 or (72.4)/(72.4) or 6x/6x...

4 x (3/3) = 4 81.9 x (72.4/72.4) = 81.9 etc.

You can also express "1" as 12 inches/1 foot or 1 foot/12 inches or 1 gallon = 4 quarts or

3 teaspoons/1 tablespoon or 1 km/0.626 mile or 1 inch/2.54 cm

These are called conversion factors; the numerator and denominator are equivalent

When you want to convert a given quantity from one unit to a different unit, such as, 7.1 inches = ? ft,

or 15 weeks = ? hours, the general procedure is:

A given quantity x __value in desired unit __ = quantity in the desired unit (cancel same unit in numer anator

value in given unit

7.1 ~~inches~~ x __ 1 foot __ = 7.1/12 foot = 0.59 foot (cancel same unit in numer. & denom.)

12 ~~inches ~~

15 ~~ weeks ~~ x __ 7 ____days ____ __ x __ 24 h __ = 15 x 7 x 24 h = 2, 520 h

1~~ week ~~ 1 ~~ day ~~

So if your question said, "How many fardells are there in 6.00 kides?"

** 6.00 ** x

__4__

__yards__

__4__

__nookes__

__2 fardells__= 6.00 x 4 x 4 x 2 fardells

*= 192 fardells* 1 ~~kide ~~ 1~~ yard ~~ 1 ~~ nooke ~~
