14. Radius: the distance from the center of a circle to the edge, measured in linear units. Sphere: a container shaped like a ball. Square units: measurements used to express area: square feet, square meters, acres, and so on. Volume: the capacity of the unit (how much it will hold) measured in cubic units (cubic feet, cubic meters) or in liquid volume units (gallons, liters, million gallons). Width: the distance from one side of the unit to the other, measured in linear units. 3 Of means to multiply.

1) For example, 22 percent (or 22%) means 22 out of 100, or 22/100. 22 100 • When using percentage in calculations (for example, to calculate hypochlorite dosages when the percent of available chlorine must be considered), the percentage must be converted to an equivalent decimal number; this is accomplished by dividing the percentage by 100. For example, calcium hypochlorite (HTH) contains 65% available chlorine. What is the decimal equivalent of 65%? 65. • Decimals and fractions can be converted to percentages.

26 Suppose that we wish to convert 240°F to Celsius. Using the three-step process, we proceed as follows: Step 1. Add 40°: 240° + 40° = 280° Step 2. 280° must be multiplied by 5/9 or 9/5. Because the conversion is to the Celsius scale, we will be moving to a number smaller than 280. Through reason and observation, obviously, if 280 were multiplied by 9/5, the result would be almost the same as multiplying by 2, which would double 280 rather than make it smaller. If we multiply by 5/9, the result will be about the same as multiplying by ½, which would cut 280 in half.
