In the system of measurement, time is a fundamental concept. The second is the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium-133 atom.

To convert seconds to other units of time, you can use the following conversion factors:

- 1 minute = 60 seconds
- 1 hour = 3,600 seconds
- 1 day = 86,400 seconds
- 1 week = 604,800 seconds
- 1 year = 31,536,000 seconds

Let's go through some examples of converting seconds to other units of time:

If you have 180 seconds, you can convert it to minutes using the conversion factor:

180 seconds * (1 minute / 60 seconds) = 3 minutes

Similarly, if you have 7,200 seconds, you can convert it to hours:

7,200 seconds * (1 hour / 3,600 seconds) = 2 hours

Now, let's try some practice problems:

By understanding the concept of seconds and practicing conversion problems, you can develop a strong grasp of time measurements and their relationships.

Geometry and Measurement: Analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures by using distance and angle

Students use fundamental facts about distance and angles to describe and analyze figures and situations in two- and three-dimensional space and to solve problems, including those with multiple steps. They prove that particular configurations of lines give rise to similar triangles because of the congruent angles created when a transversal cuts parallel lines. Students apply this reasoning about similar triangles to solve a variety of problems, including those that ask them to find heights and distances. They use facts about the angles that are created when a transversal cuts parallel lines to explain why the sum of the measures of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees, and they apply this fact about triangles to find unknown measures of angles. Students explain why the Pythagorean Theorem is valid by using a variety of methods - for example, by decomposing a square in two different ways. They apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find distances between points in the Cartesian coordinate plane to measure lengths and analyze polygons and polyhedra.
