    The HESI Math test has various word problems using the math we have reviewed already especially ratio and proportion. Here are examples of some word problems to be familiar with.

    Solve the following word problems:
    Two cars leave two different cities located 957 miles apart at the same time. Car A is traveling at 70 miles per hr and Car B is traveling at 60 miles per hr. How many hours will it take for the two cars to meet? This is distance problem and you need to use distance formula. distance= rate x time or d=rt. You have the rate and must multiply to find the time which is unknown.

    70(t) + 60(t)= 957

    130(t) = 957 divide both sides by 130

    t= 7.36 hours
    make sure you pay attention to look for 7.36 hours not 7.36 which is not correct.

    Metric Conversion: In healthcare you will have to get use to using the metric system instead of the US version. Here are common measurements used throughout the healthcare system

    Length

    10 millimeters (mm) = 1 centimeter (cm)

    10 centimeters = 1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeters

    10 decimeters = 1 meter (m) = 1,000 millimeters

    10 meters = 1 dekameter (dam)

    10 dekameters = 1 hectometer (hm) = 100 meters

    10 hectometers = 1 kilometer (km) = 1,000 meters

    Volume

    10 milliliters (ml) = 1 centiliter (cl)

    10 centiliters = 1 deciliter (dl) = 100 milliliters

    10 deciliters = 1 liter (l) = 1,000 milliliters

    10 liters = 1 dekaliter (dal)

    10 dekaliters = 1 hectoliter (hl) = 100 liters

    10 hectoliters = 1 kiloliter (kl) = 1,000 liters
