working with conversions in this video

we're going to be converting milliliters

as well as teaspoons we're going to

begin with an example that's going to

convert two teaspoons into milliliters

here's our conversion factor but for

this demonstration we're going to use an

approximation that has teaspoons equal

to five milliliters so we begin with two

teaspoons we enter our conversion factor

and to convert you remember we're going

to multiply or divide by one label to

change another one so we have our

conversion which equals one we've made

it to a ratio and we're going to

multiply that into the two teaspoons

notice what we're converting to is on

top the milliliters so we insert one

label to cancel another label so here we

go the teaspoons counsel out so now what

we do now that we've got the teaspoons

out of the way we multiply 2 times 5

milliliters equals 10 milliliters that's

our solution so two teaspoons equals 10

milliliters now let's convert

milliliters to teaspoons we're going to

convert 10 milliliters into teaspoons we

begin with 10 milliliters we have our

conversion factor here we turn it into a

ratio the teaspoon divided by 5

milliliters equals 1 and we're going to

multiply that into the 10 milliliters

notice that the teaspoons what we are

converting to is on top and the

milliliters are going to cancel out like


now what we're going to do is we're

going to multiply now we have ten

teaspoons divided by five and we're

going to clean that up so two teaspoons

which is our solution so two teaspoons

equals ten milliliters that's the end of

the video thanks
