Which is correct and why Which of the following most resembles the relation between angle and a degree: A) time and a minute, B) milk and a quart, C) area and a square inch.

 June 5th, 2018, 01:43 PM #5 Senior Member   Joined: Aug 2012 Posts: 2,262 Thanks: 689 How about some reasons with these guesses? It's a measurable thing and its unit of measure, I can't figure this out at all. Maybe area, since it's mathematically defined by its unit as an angle is defined by its unit of measure. But that's a stretch. Last edited by Maschke; June 5th, 2018 at 01:54 PM.

A quart could well be used as a measure of substances other than milk, such as water, oil or beer. Also, area and volume are multi-dimensional. That leaves choice A.
