# How many meters in 4800 cm?

48 meters 1 meter = 100 centimeters, therefore: 1/100 meters = 1 centimeter, this means you divide by 100 to convert centimeters to meters 4800/100 = 48 meters Another… way to remember whether to divide or whether to multiply for conversion goes like this. Centimeters are smaller than meter, and there are 100 centimeters in 1 meter. This means you need 100 centimeters to make 1 meter. In order to figure out how many meters is in a number of centimeters, you need to know how many sets of 100 centimeters there are. This means you should divide by 100. (MORE)

# How Should You Use an Early Childhood Height Predictor?

Predicting your child's future height with a height predictor may be as simple as looking at the parent's height. Tracking your child's height throughout their youth is a fun …way to view their progress. You don't notice significant changes in height if you see someone daily. In addition, when the child grows up, you can see whether or not you were right.An early childhood height chart gives percentile rankings for your child dependent upon their height. There are measured average heights for early childhood. This gives you the opportunity to see if your child is in the normal zone for height. Should they be outside the normal area, you may think about discussing this with your doctor. However, it is critical to remember that children also have growth spurts at different ages.Write down mom's height. Write down dad's height. Convert their individual height to centimeters. 1 centimeter equals 0.394 inches. So, if dad is 5 feet 10 inches, he would be 177.8 cm.Get mom and dad's height together. Add them together to come up with one combined total. Make sure it is in centimeters. For instance, if mom is 167.1 cm and dad is 177.8 cm, you would have 344.9 cm. You will need this figure to move further along with your calculations.Now that you have your combined heights together, you will need to make an addition or a subtraction. Add 13cm to the combined total if you are predicting the height for a boy. Subtract 13 cm from the total for a girl. If you have a total of 344.9 cm, and you are measuring for the height of a girl, you would get 331.9 cm. With the same measurement, you would get 357.9 cm.Select the height calculation for the boy or the girl. Divide that height by two. If you had 331.9 cm and divide it by two, you would get 165.95 cm. If you had 357.9 cm and divide it by two, you would get 178.95. Those numbers would predict your child's future height. The child's height may end up being between 4 inches or 10 cm along either end of each parent's height.You may have noticed that children with tall parents turn out to be tall themselves. At the same time, children with shorter parents also seem to turn out shorter. Of course, these measurements aren't set in stone. Tall parents have had short children, and short parents have had tall children. Although, now you understand how you can possibly predict the height of your child.At the early childhood stage, children usually grow anywhere from 2-2 1/2 inches per year. Once the child reaches puberty, the growth slows down to about 1-1/12 inches per year. It is also normal for a child to keep growing through age 16. (MORE)

# What is the Contribution Margin Ratio?

Looking at the unit level of a business can give you an idea of the profitability of a business model as a whole. Each product that is sold affects finances in multiple ways. …The cost of making the product will take money out, while selling it puts money back into the business. This is the basis for the contribution margin (CM), and the contribution margin ratio (CMR), as well.This done in terms of each unit, and contains the price and the variable cost (VC) of each unit. When you take the variable cost out of the price, you get the CM. This is a measure of the marginal profit of each unit. If a unit is priced at $100 and the VC is $50, then the CM is $50. This can be expanded if you have 100 units to be a CM of $5,000. This can be helpful with sales. Say you have a sale that reduces the price of a product. You now have to sell more units to achieve that same total CM, because the CM per unit is lower. Once you have the CM, you can take out fixed costs and it gives you the net operating income. This is a simple metric to give you an idea of how price and variable costs can affect income.This looks at the CM as a percentage of sales. This can be done on the unit level, or the total sales level. It is mainly used to calculate how much a business can earn from each sale. A low CMR is not necessarily bad, while a high CMR is generally preferred. The higher the CMR, the more room there is for covering fixed costs. A negative CMR is not a sustainable business practice as the business would be losing money on each sale, but temporarily going negative can be done for promotional purposes or to introduce a new product at a lower price.This takes the CM per unit and divides it by the price. Taking the total CM of $5,000 and dividing it by the total price would give a CMR of 0.50 or 50 percent. What this means is that 50 percent of sales made will help take care of the fixed costs of producing those units. When you remove the percentage of fixed costs, you get what percentage is profit. So if you have $3,000 of fixed costs, then that is 30 percent of the total costs of the units. That means that 80 percent of each sale goes towards paying for costs, and 20 percent is profit.This equation can help a business owner make financial decisions regarding certain products. If the equation shows that there is no room for profit, then the owner may decide to eliminate the product or find a way to reduce costs. Another way it is useful is that it can help calculate sales targets. If a business wants to make a certain amount of profit, then it can compute the amount of sales it needs to hit a specific CM. It can also calculate what price or variable cost it would need to reach a certain CMR.Having a high CM does not mean a business actually makes more profit. It could have more fixed costs that make net losses instead. Generally businesses would want a CM that gives them the most profits, which means a higher one. However, some types of businesses will usually have a low CM. Cheaper products that are alternatives to higher priced ones will generally have a lower CM, which means to sustain that low price point, businesses have to sell more units. Businesses that offer low cost services in competition with other businesses offering the same services for more will operate the same way.The contribution margin ratio is a valuable tool for businesses to assess how pricing affects their finances. The price of a product will determine how well it covers the costs of doing business. By using the CMR, you are able to see how much of the price is available to cover fixed costs after evaluating how much of the price covers variable costs. If a business needs a certain CM to cover fixed costs, it can input a certain price or variable cost per unit to meet that CM.The contribution margin is a controversial idea in business because of its approach to increasing the margin. It promotes increasing the margin mainly by selling more units. When costs go up, the reaction is to sell more units instead of finding ways to lower the costs. Eventually that won't be a viable option, but losses could have been incurred by that approach before coming to that conclusion. (MORE)

# Understanding and Calculating the Area of a Cylinder

Although the formula to calculate the area of a cylinder is closely related to that of a circle, it is one of the most complicated to understand and apply. It requires regular… practice with the formula to grasp the underlying logic. However, it is not hard to calculate the area of a cylinder, because the essence is to determine the total square units covering its surface, just as would be the case with shapes such as a rectangle or circle. The steps described below will help you learn how to determine the surface area of a cylinder as well as understand what it means.The surface area of a cylinder gives you an idea of its size. It helps designers and planners know the size of materials required to cover real-world objects, such as cylindrical tanks and containers. It is expressed in square units, just like in the case of the area of circles or spheres.Development of the formula of a cylinder is based on its three components: two circles at the end, plus its cylindrical component. Thus, the area of a cylinder is the sum of all three of its components.The formula for the area of a cylinder has pi () as its only constant. Variables in the formula are radius and height. Pi is either given as 3.14 or 22/7, depending on the accuracy of the answer required. Height (h) is the height of the cylinder, while the radius used (r) is the radius of the circles at its end.Since the cylinder has three parts, the formula for finding its area must include individual formulas for working out areas of each of these. The area for a circle is r2, but because a cylinder has two circles, you multiply the formula by 2 to get 2r2. Next, the area of the cylindrical component is given by 2rh. Summing up, the area of a cylinder with its three components is 2r2 + 2rh.As it is, the formula is accurate but has common terms that you can factor out. For instance, Pi, r, and 2 appear twice each and can be simplified further. On simplifying, you get area = 2r (r + h).Finding the area of a cylinder with a radius of 7 cm and height of 10 cm, you start with 2r. Substituting values in the formula, you have 2 x 22/7 x 7 cm. Working it out, you get 44 cm2.The r + h part of the formula is easy and can be worked out mentally. Substituting the given values, you have 7 cm + 10 cm, which is 17 cm.At this stage, you multiply results from steps 6 and 7 to get the cylinder's total surface area. Substituting your values, you have 44 cm x 17 cm, which comes out to 748 cm2. Notice that cm x cm results to squared units while cm + cm doesn't.If asked to find the surface area of an open cylinder on both ends, you only use the formula 2rh. If the cylinder has only one open end, you use the formula r2 + 2rh. This is because surface area is about physical surfaces, not just space.Calculating the surface area of a cylinder can be interesting as it involves solving areas for three components. Because the formula is a bit complicated, it will take practice to master it. Besides practicing, understanding how the formula is developed can also help you understand it better. Following these steps will help you grasp the underlying concepts and master the calculation.If you were to remove closed ends of a cylindrical container and roll it out, it would take the shape of a rectangle. Thus, the area of this rectangle plus that of the two closed circular ends constitute its total surface area. (MORE)

# 6 Tips for Patent Drawings

If you are applying for a patent, you must have patent drawings. These will show the examiners exactly what your invention is and how it works. Usually the drawings tell 80 pe…rcent of your story, but you need to include a description detailing the rest. In order to simplify the process, patent drawings have specific rules you must follow. Here are six tips for making better patent drawings.Every figure or drawing you create and every element of your drawing must have a corresponding number. The numbers should be consecutively listed around the drawing and be at least 0.32 cm high. If you include the same element in different drawings, use the same number. Do not number features you won't be include in the description though. Also, don't write text on your drawings, unless it is absolutely necessary.You have the option of putting several drawings on one page. This is beneficial to show different elements of your invention at once. Be sure that you place your figures and drawings in a way so that none of the individual figures are hidden.You have to include certain information on your drawings. Put the information included below on the front of each drawing, centered at the top of the page. Include the following:*a) Title of the invention*b) Inventor's name*c) Application numberPhotographs are not typically allowed for utility and design patent applications. However, photos can be used if they are the only way to illustrate the claimed invention. Be sure to use high-resolution images, so an examiner can make out all the relevant details. If an examiner believes a drawing can be done in lieu of the photographs they may require you present a drawing instead of a photograph.Use black and white for your drawings. India ink or another type that produces thick black lines is required. Each line must be well-defined, dark, and solid. It should be able to be reproduced electronically. Use hatching (thin, parallel lines) to show cross-sections. If color drawings are the only way to describe your invention, then that is allowed.High-quality paper is required. Each piece of paper should be 27.9 cm long and 21.6 cm wide. Use a top and left margin of 2.5 cm, 1.5 cm for the right, and 1.0 cm for the bottom. Don't crease, underline, erase, or fold the drawings. Each image must be easily electronically reproducible as well.To create a great set of patent drawings, you must follow the rules. Be sure to number the elements in your drawing, but describe them on another sheet of paper. It is okay to put several drawings on one page, but be sure every aspect of your invention is illustrated. Label each of your drawings, don't use photographs unless you must, and be sure to use black and white ink. Finally, use thick paper and follow all of the rules carefully.The very first patent every recorded is a "method of producing pot ash and pearl ash." It is registered to Samuel Hopkins and was recorded on July 31, 1790. Pot ash references the ashes from plants that are soaked in water in a pot to manufacture salts. (MORE)
