1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
use the following conversion factors to complete the calculations that follow
4.00 flam=1.00kern 5.00 folt= 1.00kern

1.00 burb=3.00 flam 1.00 sapper= 6.00 folt

a)15.2 kern equals how many flam?

b)47.65 sapper equals how many kern?

c)0.845 flam equals how many folt?

d)one burb is equivalent to how many sapper?



3. The attempt at a solution

a) 15.2 x 4.00= 60.8 flam

b)47.65x6.00=285.9
285.9/5=57.18

c)im not sure where to begin for this one im at work right now but i will add my own attempt when I get back home if anyone wants to give me a start that would be good.

d)for this one im pretty sure I can do it but I have to leave work right now so I will get back to this in about 45 minutes.
