A conversion factor is simply a number, often expressed as a ratio of two numbers, that allows you to convert one unit to another. In this case you want to convert miles to feet. <br /><br />Susie swam 122 miles. Since there are 5280 feet in one mile, the conversion factor is 5280. Susie swam 122*5280, or 644160 feet. <br /><br />It is often better to express a conversion factor as a ratio to make sure that you are applying it correctly. Just given a single number it may not be clear how it should be applied. In the problem above, for example, how did I know to multiply by 5280 instead of dividing by 5280? <br /><br />Writing the conversion factor as a ratio makes sure that your answer will come out right. When written as a ratio, the units are always carried along. Your problem would then be written as <br />122 miles * 5280 feet / 1 mile = 644160 feet. i suggest you <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eclix.unit.converter.calculator" rel="nofollow">Unit Converter</a> help to find accurate results.Unknownhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00677419685066620728noreply@blogger.com
