There is two ways to convert 112 feet to centimeters. The most common way would be 457.2. This is taught in math.
Why would you want to use three unit multipliers when the single multiplier: 3.2808 does the trick?
I would use 1/36 to convert inches to yards and 1/1760 to convert yards to miles.
meters to centimeters x100 centimeters to inches /2.54 inches to feet /12
Don't you know how to use unit multipliers?! GOSH!!
You might convert 3 gallons to pints with two unit multipliers if you knew that there are 4 quarts in 1 gallon, and 2 pints in 1 quart. It could look like this: 3 gallons x (4 quarts/1 gallon) x (2 pints/1 quart) = 3 x (4/1) x (2/1) pints = 24 pints
1 km = 1000 metres. Therefore 60 sq km = 60 km*km = 60 *1000 m *1000 m = 60 million sq metres.
Turn the multipliers upside down !
A conversion factor
Mole is a unit of mass, litre is a unit of volume.
cu. yards x 27 ( cu. ft. per cu. yd ) x 12x12x12 ( cu. inches per cu. foot ) Thus, 40 x 3x3x3 x 12x12x12 =
If you need to memorize certain relationships between metric and American measurements, one of the most commonly needed is 1 inch equals 2.54 cm. A foot equals 12 inches. So multiply 35 feet by 12 inches. Then multiply the result by 2.54 centimeters per inch. This type of process keeps us from having to memorize hundreds of detailed unit multipliers, or looking them up in a book every time.
