Larger Unit to Smaller Unit -----> Multiply
Smaller to Larger Unit -----> Divide
Example :
1 minute > 1 second
Minutes to Seconds -----> Multiply by 60
Seconds to Minutes -----> Divide by 60
Problem 1 :
Convert 2 feet into inches.
Solution :
Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.
2 feet = 2 ⋅ 12 inches
2 feet = 24 inches
Hence, 2 feet is equal to 24 inches.
Problem 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 ⋅ 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
Problem 6 :
Convert 2 pounds into ounces.
Solution :
Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.
2 pounds = 2 ⋅ 16 ounces
2 pounds = 32 ounces
Hence, 2 pounds is equal to 32 ounces.
Problem 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 ⋅ 2000 pounds
3.5 tons = 7000 pounds
Hence, 3.5 tons is equal to 7000 pounds.
Problem 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 ⋅ 2000 pounds
0.5 tons = 1000 pounds
0.5 tons = 1000 ⋅ 16 ounces
0.5 tons = 16000 ounces
Hence, 0.5 tons is equal to 16000 ounces.
Problem 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.
Problem 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.
