Hello!

You could measure an egg's mass (g) or its liquid volume (mL).
There are 100 cm in a meter.
If it's 35 degrees Celsius, it's about 95 degrees Fahrenheit -
I'd say that's definitely summer weather.
A year has 52 weeks (plus a few days left over).
If you're asking for 35 hundreths in decimal, it looks like
this: 0.35

Hope this helps.
