1. How many Mm are in 3.91x10^{-4} mm?

2. How many centiliters are in 349.7 microliters?

3. How many micrograms are there in 2.51x10^{-4} kg?

Use the following information to answer questions 4 and 5.

In the Liwor Marien School District there are 17 elementary schools.

Each school has 3 custodians.

Each custodian drives a car.

Each car has 5 tires (including the spare).

Each grade has three classes.

Each class has two teachers.

Each teacher has 5 arms.

Each arm has 4 fingers.

Each finger has 4 fingernails.

6. A student does the pichnometer lab and obtains the following data:

Mass of empty pichnometer |
45.31 g |

Mass of pichnometer with water |
47.92 g |

Mass of pichnometer with Burple Soda |
48.66 g |

Density of water |
0.998 g/ml |

What is the density of Burple Soda?

7. A student does the pie plate lab and obtains the following data:

Diameter of the circle |
19.8 cm |

Mass of substance X in one drop |
0.0018 g |
