A parallelogram has a perimeter of 48 millimeters. Two of the sides are each 20 millimeters long. What is the length of each of the other two sides?
2 sides * 20 mm each is 40 mm
subtract this from the perimeter of 48:
48 - 40 = 8
Since the remaining two sides equal each other, their length is:
8/2 = [B]4mm[/B]

A penny has a diameter of 19 millimeters. What is the radius of the penny.

A penny has a diameter of 19 millimeters. What is the radius of the penny.
D = 2r
To solve for r, we divide each side by 2:
r = D/2
Plugging in D = 19, we get:
r = [B]19/2 or 9.5[/B]

How many millimeters are in a meter?

How many millimeters are in a meter?
1 meter = [B]1,000 millimeters[/B]

If a snail crawled n millimeters, how many kilometers did it travel?

If a snail crawled n millimeters, how many kilometers did it travel?
1 millimeter = 1/1000 of a meter
1 meter = 1/1000 of a kilometer
1/1000 * 1/1000 = 0.000001
So our kilometers value is
[B]0.000001n[/B]
