Q:

Which pair of measurements is not equivalent? 6,000 mL, 6 L 9500 mL, 9.5 L 4.5 L, 450 mL 0.3 L, 300 mL

Accepted Solution

A:
4.5l and 450ml are the pair of measurements which is not equivalentSolution:Let us solve each pair of measurements to find which is not equivalentfirst pair: 6000 ml and 6 LTo compare both quantities, they must be in same units. Let us convert them into same unitswe know that 1 liter = 1000 milliliterHence 6 liter = 6000 milliliterHence both are equivalent. This pair is correctSecond pair: 9500 ml and 9.5L[tex]9.5L = 9.5 \times 1000 = 9500ml[/tex]Hence both are equivalent. This pair is correctThird pair: 4.5L and 450 ml[tex]4.5l = 4.5 \times 1000 = 4500 ml[/tex]Both are not equivalentFourth pair: 0.3 L and 300ml[tex]0.3l = 0.3 \times 1000 = 300ml[/tex]Hence both are equivalent. This pair is correctThus 4.5l and 450ml are not equivalent
