Math Conversions

We have different units in measurement across the globe when it comes to math. For instance, an American will measure the length of a piece of string in meters while a UK-based student holding the same string will measure its length in yards. You might think at first that the strings don’t have the same measurement, but in reality, the strings have the same length. The only difference is units. In America, they are using the Standard System of Measurement, and they use the English System in the UK.

For many years, people have been converting units for comparison and testing purposes. Here is one good example of conversion. Regine is in her room with a temperature of 18 degrees Celsius. She wants to find out what is the Fahrenheit equivalent of the temperature in her room. She consulted MathComplete.Com and found out that she has to compute the said value. She saw a formula and here it is: F=9/5C+32degrees. She used her calculator and found out that the temperature in her room is equivalent to 64.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, you can compute for the Celsius equivalent of Fahrenheit by manipulating the above equation. C=5/9(F-32degrees) is the other equation or formula used in converting temperature.

Moreover, distance and length are just few of the many quantities being converted. Since the Standard System is made in a way that each unit has an equivalent multiple of 10 (or for instance: 1 meter =10 decimeters), the convenient line graph below is also constructed for easy conversion.

Km-Hm-Dkm-M-Dm-Cm-Mm

If you want to know what is 1 km in m, you just have to start in km and count the number of times you skip to go to m. In this case, we skipped 3 times. By this, 1 is multiplied to 1 x 103. or 1000. The same rule applies to any other standard unit such as grams, square meter and many more.
