    Algebra II

    Please help with this algebra question. I'm supposed to convert 64 cubic meters per second to cubic feet per hour using unit multipliers. I thought it'd be as simple as using an online converted but it's not.

    $\displaystyle 64 ~ cubic ~ ft/s = \frac{64 ~ ft^3}{1 ~ s} \cdot \frac{3600 ~ s}{1 ~ h}$

    $\displaystyle 64\dfrac{\text{m}^3}{\text{s}} = 64 \dfrac{\cancel{\text{m}^3}}{\cancel{\text{s}}} \cdot \dfrac{100^3 \cancel{\text{ cm}^3}}{1\cancel{\text{ m}^3}}\cdot \dfrac{1 \cancel{\text{ in}^3}}{2.54^3 \cancel{\text{ cm}^3}}\cdot \dfrac{1\text{ ft}^3}{12^3\cancel{\text{ in}^3}}\cdot \dfrac{3600\cancel{\text{ s}}}{1\text{ h}} = \dfrac{64\cdot 100^3\cdot 3600}{2.54^3\cdot 12^3}\dfrac{\text{ft}^3}{\text{h}}$
