# weekly blog post #5

this week we learned how to convert a metric to an imperial or vice versa.

The metric system is an internationally agreed decimal system of measurement. the metic is all about kilo, hecta, unit, deca, deci, centi, and mili.

this is how to convert within the metric:

 1 millimeter = 0.001 meter 1 centimeter = 0.01 meter 1 decimeter = 0.1 meter 1 kilometer = 1000 meters

the imperial is only used by U.S and Canada and compromises of inches, feet, yards, and miles.

this is how to convert within the imperial:

 1 foot [ft] 12 in 1 yard [yd] 3 ft 1 mile 1760 yd

this is how to convert metric to imperial:

Metric US or Imperial
1 millimetre [mm] 0.03937 in
1 centimetre [cm] 10 mm 0.3937 in
1 metre [m] 100 cm 1.0936 yd
1 kilometre [km] 1000 m 0.6214 mile

and this is what I learned this week 🙂

This week we learned about rational exponent and how to solve them.

rational exponents are numbers with fraction powers which you could turn them into radical form by having following the rule of “flower power”. Flower power means that the bottom is always the root and the top is always the power and to term them into power form you have to do likewise from radical form.

this is how to solve a rational exponent.

So the answer of 16 to the power of 3/4 is 8
