Measurement, Perimeter, and Area for CBEST Exam Study Guide
There are certain numbers, formulas, and measurements, such as decimal equivalents, area formulas, and weight conversions, that you will be expected to know when working some CBEST problems. It's a good idea to put them on flash cards for memorization.
You will be asked to figure problems using measurements of length, weight, and volume as well as speed, time, and temperature. Here are the common measurements you may be asked to use. Knowledge of the metric system was not on the CBEST when this book went to print.
Weight measurements are usually measured on a scale.
- 1 pound = 16 ounces
- 1 ton = 2,000 pounds
Liquid and Dry Measurements
Liquid and dry measurements are usually made in a measuring spoon, cup, or larger container. Think of the dairy department of your grocery store. Units smaller than a cup probably will not be on the test.
- 1 cup = 8 ounces
- 1 pint = 2 cups = 16 ounces
- 1 quart = 2 pints
- 1 quart = 4 cups = 32 ounces
- gallon = 2 quarts
- gallon = 4 pints = 8 cups
- gallon = 64 ounces
- 1 gallon = 2 half gallons
- 1 gallon = 16 cups = 4 quarts
- 1 gallon = 128 ounces
Distance can be measured by rulers or tape measures. In a car, miles are measured by an odometer.
- 1 foot = 12 inches
- 1 yard = 3 feet
- 1 yard = 36 inches
- 1 mile = 5,280 feet
- 1 mile = 1,760 yards
