CHEM 101 Concorde Career College Unit Importance Question

Question Description

I’m working on a chemistry writing question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.

A child asked a clerk, “How much is that lollipop?” The clerk responded that the candy was worth “three.” The child’s father asked how far away the nearest grocery store was. The clerk told the child’s father it was “twelve away from here.”

  • Are units important in this example?
  • What extra information would units give the child or his father to clear up any ambiguity?
