## About "Convert rates and measurements customary units"

Convert rates and measurements customary units :

Customary units of measurement chart is the one which gives a system of measurements commonly used for length, weight, capacity and time in the united states.

## How to convert small unit to larger unit ?

To convert smaller unit into larger unit, we have to divide.

## How to convert larger unit to smaller unit ?

To convert larger unit into smaller unit, we have to multiply.

## Examples problems of customary units of length

Example 1 :

Convert 2 feet into inches.

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

2 feet  =  2 x 12 inches

2 feet  =  24 inches

Hence, 2 feet is equal to 24 inches

Example 2 :

Convert 3.5 yards into inches.

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

3.5 yards  =  3.5 x 36 inches

3.5 yards  =  126 inches

Hence, 3.5 yards is equal to 126 inches

Problem 3 :

Convert 30 inches into feet.

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

30 inches  =  30 / 12 feet

30 inches  =  2.5 feet

Hence, 30 inches is equal to 2.5 feet

Problem 4 :

Convert 5280 yards into miles.

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

5280 yards  =  5280 / 1760 miles

5280 yards  =  3 miles

Hence, 5280 yards is equal to 3 miles

Problem 5 :

Convert 24 feet into yards

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

24 feet  =  24 / 3 yards

24 feet  =  8 yards

Hence, 24 feet is equal to 8 yards

## Customary units of weight

Example 6 :

Convert 2 pounds into ounces.

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

2 pounds  =  2 x 16 ounces

2 pounds  =  32 ounces

Hence, 2 pounds is equal to 32 ounces.

Example 7 :

Convert 3.5 tons into pounds  .

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

3.5 tons  =  3.5 x 2000 pounds

3.5 tons  =  7000 pounds

Hence, 3.5 tons is equal to 7000 pounds.

Example 8 :

Convert 0.5 tons into ounces.

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

0.5 tons  =  0.5 x 2000 pounds

0.5 tons  =  1000 pounds

0.5 tons  =  1000 x 16 ounces

0.5 tons  =  16000 ounces

Hence, 0.5 tons is equal to 16000 ounces.

Example 9 :

Convert 48 ounces into pounds.

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

48 ounces  =  48 / 16 pounds

48 ounces  =  3 pounds

Hence, 48 ounces is equal to 3 pounds.

Example 10 :

Convert 5000 pounds into tons

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

5000 pounds  =  5000 / 2000 tons

5000 pounds  =  2.5 tons

Hence, 5000 pounds is equal to 2.5 tons.

## Customary units of capacity

Example 11 :

Convert 2 pints into cups.

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

2 pints  =  2 x 2 cups

2 pints  =  4 cups

Hence, 2 pints is equal to 4 cups.

Example 12 :

Convert 3.5 quarts into cups  .

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

3.5 quarts  =  3.5 x 4 cups

3.5 quarts  =  14 cups

Hence, 3.5 quarts is equal to 14 cups.

Example 13 :

Convert 32 cups into quarts.

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

32 cups  =  32 / 4 quarts

32 cups  =  8 quarts

Hence, 32 cups is equal to 8 quarts.

Example 14 :

Convert 256 cups into gallons.

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

256 cups  =  256 / 16 gallons

256 cups  =  16 gallons

Hence, 256 cups is equal to 16 gallons.

Example 15 :

Convert 24 quarts into gallons

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

24 quarts  =  24 / 4 gallons

24 quarts  =  6 gallons

Hence, 24 quarts is equal to 6 gallons.

Example 16 :

Convert 2 minutes into seconds.

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

2 minutes  =  2 x 60 seconds

2 minutes  =  120 seconds

Hence, 2 minutes is equal to 60 seconds.

## Customary units of time

Example 17 :

Convert 3.5 hours into minutes  .

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.

3.5 hours  =  3.5 x 60 minutes

3.5 hours  =  210 minutes

Hence, 3.5 hours is equal to 210 minutes.

let us look into the next example problem on "Convert rates and measurements customary units".

Example 18 :

Convert 3 days into minutes.

Solution :

Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit unit. So we have to multiply.

3 days  =  3 x 24 hours

3 days  =  72 hours

3 days  =  72 x 60 minutes

3 days  =  4320 minutes

Hence, 3 days is equal to 4320 minutes.

let us look into the next example problem on "Convert rates and measurements customary units".

Example 19 :

Convert 480 seconds into minutes.

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

480 seconds  =  480 / 60 minutes

480 seconds  =  8 minutes

Hence, 480 seconds is equal to 8 minutes.

let us look into the next example problem on "Convert rates and measurements customary units".

Example 20 :

Convert 112 days into weeks.

Solution :

Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.

112 days  =  112 / 7 weeks

112 days  =  16 weeks

Hence, 112 days is equal to 16 weeks.
