• Im literaly going to throw my chromebook
• I sha'll be here to virtually catch it.
• I really do not get it because my problem was way more different than this guys and I do not understand
• same its stressing me out some much i cried a little
• I don't think he explains enough
• true.He does not explain enough
• this doesn't help at all this is so different than my actual question
• Sal is showing you a basic question because he wants you to get the basic idea and use it on other problems.
• How do i do this I dont get it
• you must bring the two types of units beside each other one is 'units' and the other is 'mm' then he tells you that 1 'unit' is equal to 1/2 'mm' then he says that the chip is 9 'mm' so you divide 9/0.5=18, then you multiply 1*18=18

Hope this helps
• I was confused about a problem, so I came to watch this video that Khan recommended to me, and the problem in the video is LITERALLY the EXACT SAME PROBLEM that I'm on! [;-;]
