Math Studies: Units Project Talha Mirza IA Gilmartin Dear noble tribe leaders of T-lsland, I have created a brand-new system of units for us to use in our daily lives called the T-Dog system. You will find this system to be quite useful, as it includes six unique units which measure temperature, length, time, weight/mass, volume/displacement, and currency. By utilizing these units, life will be made easier for us. Moreover, if it is ever decided to switch to other well-known systems, it is possible as each unit has a simple conversion to the metric system.

Lastly, there are 5 situations attached to this proposal which exemplify the simplicity and convenience of using the T-Dog system. The first unit in the T-Dog system is “Sweats” ( a measurement of temperature. This measurement was invented by the unique Talha Tribe, who were the first ones to employ the use of this ingenious system. This measurement is used to calculate and measure heat, specifically the temperature of any given atmosphere, and depict the weather. This measurement is based on the amount of sweat one produces under a given amount of heat; therefore this unit was given the name “Sweats”.

The symbol used to designate the “Sweats” unit is a small water/sweat droplet. This symbol was created to visually represent the unit of “Sweats”. The “Sweats” unit, in relation to the metric system would convert by the following: 1 Sweat = 10 0 Celsius The second unit in the T-Dog system is “Longs” (10), a measurement of length. This measurement was also invented by the unique Talha Tribe, who were the first ones to employ the use of this ingenious system. This measurement is used to calculate and measure length and/or distance, specifically from point A to point B.

It is used when members of the tribe travel around the island. This measurement is based on the amount one would have to travel to somewhere that is a “long” Journey away, this is why this unit was named “Longs”. The symbol used to designate the “Longs” unit are the words “10”, an abbreviated form of “Longs”, this is so “Longs” are not confused for Liters or other measurements. The “Longs” unit, in relation to the metric system would convert by the following: 1 Long = 10 Kilometers The third unit in the T-Dog system is “Ticktocks” a measurement of elapsed time.

This measurement was again invented by the unique Talha Tribe, who were the first ones to employ the use of this ingenious system. This measurement is used to calculate and measure the time elapsed of any given occurrence, for example a race would be measured in “Ticktocks”. This measurement is based on the amount of time elapsed in a given situation, and was named “Ticktocks” after the sound a clock makes as it passes time. The symbol used to designate the “Ticktocks” unit is a small hourglass. This is because an hourglass is a widely recognized symbol for time, as it as an Instrument Tor time measurement ItselT.

I ne “l lcKtocKs” unit, In relation to metric system would convert by the following: 1 Ticktock = 10 Seconds The fourth unit in the T-Dog system is “Fatties” (fa), a measurement of weight/ volume. This measurement was also invented by the unique Talha Tribe, who were to calculate and measure the weight/mass of any given object, and it is often used in the Talha Tribe’s farmer’s market, where produce is sold by the “Fatty’. This measurement is based on the amount of “Fatties” of food one would have to consume to become rather large.

This unit was named fatties, because if one consumes too any “Fatties” of anything, they themselves will become a fatty. The symbol used to designate the “Fatties” unit are the words (fa), this is to prevent confusion the “Fillies” unit (fl). This is an abbreviation of the word “Fatties”, making it simpler to represent said unit. The “Fatties” unit, in relation to the metric system would convert by the following: 1 Fatty = 10 Kilograms The fifth unit in the T-Dog system is “Fillies” (fl), a measurement of volume/ displacement.

This measurement was also invented by the unique Talha Tribe, who were the first ones to employ the use of this ingenious system. This measurement is used to calculate and measure volume and displacement of any material, especially liquids, most commonly used to measure the volume of the common coconut drink on T-lsland. This measurement is based on the amount of liquid one would have to drink before they must use the washroom, and was thus named “Fillies” as one is quite full after drinking 1 Filly, and must use the washroom.

The symbol used to designate the “Fillies” unit are the words “fl”, an abbreviated form of “Fillies”, this is again so “Fillies” are not confused for other units of measurement in the T-Dog system. The “Fillies” unit, in relation to the metric system would convert by the following: 1 Filly = 10 Kiloliters The sixth and final unit in the T-Dog system is “Greenies” (G), a unit representing the currency of the Talha Tribe. This measurement was also invented by the unique Talha Tribe, who were the first ones to employ the use of this ingenious system.

This measurement is used to calculate prices of goods sold on T-lsland, and the salaries of workers in the Talha Tribe. This measurement is based on the color of the currency bills, which happen to be green, and therefore this unit was named “Greenies”, to eep things simple. The symbol used to designate the “Greenies” unit is the word “G”, an abbreviated form of “Greenies”, this is so “Greenies” are not to be confused with the measurement grams (g) of the metric system.

The “Greenies” unit, in relation to the metric system, would convert by the following: 1 Greenie = 10 USD Therefore, by examining the six creative and unique units in the brilliant T-Dog system, I hope that your highness would be so kind as to accept and integrate this system of measurements in the everyday life of people, society, and businesses of T- Island. This is due to the fact that they measure temperature, length, time, weight, volume, and currency. Talha Tribe Chief Advisor Word Problems: 1: The temperature on T-lsland is 3 Sweats.

The weather agency at WIHI wants to display the weather of T-lsland in Fahrenheit (OF). Given the formula (C -320) , and 1 Sweat = 100 C, calculate the temperature of T-lsland in Sweats. 2: The Talha Tribe conga line is travelling at high speeds of 5 longs/ticktock, please calculate the speed of the conga line in the metric system using units kilometers over seconds. : The T-lsland Tropical Bank offers the following rates for changing 1 Greenie (1 G) of the Talha Tribe to the Ally Tribe’s Shells: ‘buy at 2’, ‘sell at 1. ‘. a) Convert 1006 to Shells b) Convert Shells to G, how much money does the bank make off these transcations? 4: The T-lsland Farmer’s Market sells 5 fatties of sand-pies to some American tourists, how much do sand-pies weigh in grams. Given that 1 Kilogram = 1000 Grams 5: Ine I-Island makes 1 Tilly 0T coconut smootnle per 3 tlcKtocKs, calculate now many fillies of coconut smoothies are made in 15 seconds. Given that 1 ticktock = 10
