Okay. This question says the weights and kilograms of five students are forty eight, fifty six, sixty one, fifty two and fifty seven. If one kilogram is equal to two point two pounds, how many of the students wait over one hundred and twenty pounds. So essentially, what we have to do is convert what were given which is that kilograms into what we want, which is pounds were going from kilograms two pounds. Okay, but we do have a serious of five numbers and we know that we can start out by arranging and smallest two biggest order. Because if we do that and we know that the third number is already over one hundred twenty pounds and the fourth and the fifth already also have to be over one hundred and twenty pounds. So let's go ahead and arrange these into the smallest a critic greatest warder. Then we have forty eight, fifty two, fifty six, fifty seven and sixty one. So this is our order from lowest stylized. Okay, so then now we wanted to convert this lowest one forty eight kilograms using dimensional analysis, we're going to convert it in two pounds. So then we can set it up like this by putting the two point two pounds on the top and then the one kilogram on the bottom. The reason we want to do it this way is because then this kilogram and this kilogram the units canceled out and we're left with the pounds on the top, which is exactly what we want so that if we do the forty eight times two point two, we get one hundred and five point six pounds. So clearly this number is not greater than one hundred and twenty pounds. So we have to keep going. So then let's try the fifty two so again we're going to set it up best fifty two kilograms over one time's a two point two pounds over one kilogram, similar to how he did it before. And we know that the kilograms in the kilograms cancel out and if we do fifty two times to point to that gives us one of fourteen point four pounds. So again it's school, not quite great enough, so we're going to go ahead and try to fifty six. So then we're going to do fifty six kilograms again times that two point two pounds over one kilogram and when we do that, we get one hundred and twenty three point to pounce ten. So then we know that starting from fifty six kilograms, we know that that is greater than one hundred and twenty pounds, which means if fifty six is greater than fifty seven must also be greater. And sixty one kilograms must also be greater than one hundred and twenty pounds, which means that three of our students are going to be greater than one hundred twenty pounds.
