I did 1500 / 1000 to get 15$/L
It should be 1.5 $/L
I'm in the ninth grade and I got this assignment. I'm 99% sure my teacher has the wrong answer. So, just tell me what you would get for this problem? Thanks.
The problem is that you have two hospitals with a certain amount of rooms and two cleaning products with different prices. I won't post the entire problem, just the converting part since that is where I apparently went wrong.
Cleaning Product 1:
spectrokill: 15 000$/m^3 (plus 2000$ for a machine to use it)
covers 50m^2/L
Cleaning Product 2:
javel: 20$/L
covers 40m^2/L
What I did:
I thought you would have to convert the spectrokill into $/L, since 1m^3= 1kL which is = to 1000 L
I did 15 000 / 1000 to get 15$/L and then compared with the other product for each hospital.
My teacher told me you have to find the cubic root of 1500 to get $24.66 but I don't understand why you would need to do that, since you're measuring volume and not distance.
