Conversion between Different Length Measures

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.
