Obviously, the only variable in this method is the choice of 5/9 or 9/5 in the multiplication step. To make the proper choice, you must be familiar with the two scales. The freezing point of water is 32° on the Fahrenheit scale and 0° on the Celsius scale. The boiling point of water is 212° on the Fahrenheit scale and 100° on the Celsius scale. Key point: Note, for example, that at the same temperature, higher numbers are associated with the Fahrenheit scale and lower numbers with the Celsius scale.

What is the mean capacity of the storage tanks? Solution: The mean capacity of the storage tanks is: 100,000 + 100,000 + 100,000 + 1,000,000 = 325,000 gal 4 Notice that no tank in this example has a capacity anywhere close to the mean. 25 Problem: Efﬂuent BOD test results for the treatment plant during the month of August are shown below. What is the average efﬂuent BOD for the month? 26 Problem: For the primary inﬂuent ﬂow, the composite-sampled solids concentrations were recorded for the week in the following table.

2 Problem: Convert 65% to decimal percent. 8% solids. What is the concentration of solids in decimal percent? 058 100 Key point: Unless otherwise noted, all calculations in the text using percent values require the percent to be converted to a decimal before use. Key point: To determine what quantity a percent equals, ﬁrst convert the percent to a decimal, then multiply by the total quantity. 4 Problem: Biosolids drawn from the settling tank are 5% solids. If 2800 gal of biosolids are withdrawn, how many gallons of solids are removed?
