Nursing Preparation Study Guide 1 kilo = 1000 units 1 hecto = 100 units 1 deca = 10 units Gram (mass/weight) 1 unit 10 deci = 1 unit 100 centi= 1 unit 1000 milli = 1 unit km = kilometer kL = kiloliter kg = kilogram hm = hectometer hL= hectoliter hg = hectogram dam = decameter daL = decaliter dag = decagram m = meter L = liter g = gram dm = decimeter dL – deciliter dg = decigram cm = centimeter cL = centiliter cg = centigram mm = millimeter mL = millimeter mg = milligram Ex. 5 kilo 50 hecto 500 deca 5000 units 50,000 deci 500,000 centi 5,000,000 milli DIVIDE by 10 if you are getting bigger (same as moving decimal point one space to the left) MULTIPLY by 10 if you are getting smaller (same as amoving decimal point one space to the right) 3.4.2 Temperature As you can see, 0° C is freezing while 32° F is freezing. Similarity, 100° C is boiling compared with 212°F. To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit you need to multiply the temperature in Celsius by 1.8, and then add 32 to it. ( °F = 1.8 × (°C) + 32) To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius you do the opposite. Subtract 32 from the temperature and then divide by 1.8. `°C = °abD8 <.= c 3.5 Algebra For the algebra section you should be familiar with solving unknowns in equations and graphing linear equations. • Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities • Ratios and Proportions • Coordinate Plane • Linear Functions 3.5.1 Inequalities The value of different numbers can be compared by their relative position on the number line. For instance, in the given number line below, is less than and is denoted by < , which means lies to the left of on the number line. We can also say > , that is is greater than and lies on the right side of the number line, relative to the position of .
