1 km = 1000 meters
1 meter = 0.001 km
if you are refering to a regular ton(2,000 lbs.) it would be 1,500 lbs. Or 1,550 lbs. for a long ton(2,200 lbs.)
Set up your equations based upon the following: Let N = number of nickles. Let N + 1 = number of dimes. Let 5N = the value (in cents) of all the nickles. Let 10(N + 1) = the value (in cents) of all the dimes. Let 235 = the total value (in cents) of all the coins (nickles and dimes). In English, the value of the dimes plus the value of the nickles equals the total value of the coins. Algebraically, we write: 5N + 10(N + 1) = 235 The distributive law of multiplication lets us rewrite that this way: 5N + 10N + 10 = 235 Grouping lets us write that this way: 15N + 10 = 235 Subtracting 10 from both sides of the equation yields: 15N = 225 Dividing both sides by 15 yields: N = 15 So, we have 15 nickles and 15 + 1, or 16, dimes.
Nothing. It is the first letter in the Greek Alphabet. It is correct that alpha is the first letter in the Greek Alphabet. For some reason, people doing research on sleep have defined the activity of the alert, awake brain as "beta waves". Then when in a relaxed or dreaming state, the brain produces "alpha waves". Deeper sleep is characterized by theta waves, and the deepest sleep produces delta waves. So from this perspective, beta comes before alpha. But be ready to explain, because people will think you are wrong.
I have seven chickens and feed them chicken scratch, oyster shell and scraps from the kitchen. I even dry old egg shells and crush them up for them. I found the only time they don't lay is when they are moulting. They don't seem to need anything special to lay eggs, but do require water and feed. I feed my chickens Purina Mills Layena SunFresh Recipe. I started mixing a little into their chick starter at 14 weeks. This product will help strengthen the shells and give a rich yellow yolk.
