The chart given below can be used to convert rates and measurements into customary units.
To convert smaller units into larger units, we have to divide.
To convert larger unit into smaller unit, we have to multiply.
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
= 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
= 126 inches
Example 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
= 2.5 feet
Example 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
= 3 miles
Example 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
= 8 yards
Example 1 :
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
= 32 ounces
Example 2 :
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
= 7000 pounds
Example 3 :
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
= 1000 pounds
= 1000 x 16 ounces
= 16000 ounces
Example 4 :
Convert 48 ounces into pounds.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
48 ounces = 48/16 pounds
= 3 pounds
Example 5 :
Convert 5000 pounds into tons.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
5000 pounds = 5000/2000 tons
= 2.5 tons
Example 1 :
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
= 4 cups
Example 2 :
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
= 14 cups
Example 3 :
Convert 32 cups into quarts.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
32 cups = 32/4 quarts
= 8 quarts
Example 4 :
Convert 256 cups into gallons.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
256 cups = 256/16 gallons
= 16 gallons
Example 5 :
Convert 24 quarts into gallons.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
24 quarts = 24/4 gallons
= 6 gallons
Example 1 :
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
= 120 seconds
Example 2 :
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
= 210 minutes
Example 3 :
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
= 72 hours
= 72 x 60 minutes
= 4320 minutes
Example 4 :
Convert 480 seconds into minutes.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
480 seconds = 480/60 minutes
= 8 minutes
Example 5 :
Convert 112 days into weeks.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
112 days = 112/7 weeks
= 16 weeks
