## Measurements and Units

In math, and especially in the sciences, you end up working a lot with measurements. The values given in measurements are not just pure numbers like in a standard math problem, but instead represent physical characteristics such as length, volume, and time, just to name a few.

The scale of these different measurements is given by their units. For instance, we know that 10 centimeters are less than 10 kilometers because the unit of centimeters is much smaller than the unit of kilometers.
