1 centimeter = 10 millimeters
1 meter = 100 centimeters
1 kilometer = 1000 meters
1 foot = 12 inches
1 yard = 3 feet
1 yard = 36 inches
1 mile = 1760 yards
1 millimeter = 0.03937 inches
1 centimeter = 0.39370 inches
1 meter = 39.37008 inches
1 meter = 3.28084 feet
1 meter = 1.09361 yards
1 kilometer = 1093.6133 yards
1 kilometer = 0.62137 miles
1 inch = 2.54 centimeters
1 foot = 30.48 centimeters

Bigger unit to Smaller unit ----> Multiply
Smaller unit to Bigger unit ----> Divide
Example :
1 foot > 1 inch
Foot to Inch ----> Multiply by 12
Inch to Foot ----> Divide by 12
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
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.
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
30 inches = 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
5280 yards = 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
24 feet = 8 yards
Example 6 :
David travels 60 miles in two hours. How many yards of distance will he cover in one minute ?
Solution :
Distance covered in 2 hours = 60 miles
Distance covered in 1 hour = 30 miles
We know that 1 hour = 60 minutes and 1 mile = 1760 yards.
1 hour ----> 30 miles
60 minutes ----> 30 x 1760 yards
60 minutes ----> 52800 yards
So, distance covered in 60 minutes = 52800 yards.
Distance covered in one minute = 52800/60 yards
= 880 yards
Example 7 :
Mark jogged 15840 feet in 45 minutes. Find the speed of Mark in feet per minute.
Solution :
Speed = Distance/Time
Speed = 15840/45
Speed = 352 feet per minute
Hence the speed of Mark is 352 feet per minute.
