CUSTOMARY UNITS

The customary system of measurement is defined as a set of weights and measures being used in the United States for measuring length, weight, capacity, and temperature.

Converting Customary Units - Important Stuff

Larger Unit to Smaller Unit -----> Multiply

Smaller to Larger Unit -----> Divide

Example :

1 foot > 1 inch

Feet to Inches -----> Multiply by 12

Inches to Feet -----> Divide by 12

Problem 1 :

Convert 2 pints into cups. 

Solution :

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

2 pints  =  2  2 cups 

2 pints  =  4 cups

Hence, 2 pints is equal to 4 cups.

Problem 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  4 cups

3.5 quarts  =  14 cups

Hence, 3.5 quarts is equal to 14 cups.

Problem 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 

32 cups  =  8 quarts

Hence, 32 cups is equal to 8 quarts.

Problem 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 

256 cups  =  16 gallons

Hence, 256 cups is equal to 16 gallons.

Problem 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 

24 quarts  =  6 gallons 

Hence, 24 quarts is equal to 6 gallons.

Problem 6 :

Convert 2 minutes into seconds. 

Solution :

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

2 minutes  =  2  60 seconds 

2 minutes  =  120 seconds

Hence, 2 minutes is equal to 60 seconds.

Problem 7 :

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  60 minutes

3.5 hours  =  210 minutes

Hence, 3.5 hours is equal to 210 minutes.

Problem 8 :

Convert 3 days into minutes. 

Solution :

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

3 days  =  3  24 hours 

3 days  =  72 hours

3 days  =  72  60 minutes

3 days  =  4320 minutes

Hence, 3 days is equal to 4320 minutes.

Problem 9 :

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. 

Problem 10 :

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.
