Conversion Weight Length/Height Volume 1 lb = 16 oz 1 ton = 2,000 lbs = 32,000 oz 1 ft = 12 in 1 yd = 3ft = 36in 1 mi = 1760 yd = 5280 ft ft = feet
in = inches
yd = yards
mi = miles fl oz = fluid ounces
c = cups
pt = pints
qu = quarts
gal = gallon 1 c = 8 fl oz 1 qt = 2 pt = 4cups 1 gal = 4 qt = 8 pt oz = ounces
lbs = pounds
ton = tons Example 1 Converting When going from a LARGER to a SMALLER unit you MULTIPLY to get your answer. When going from a SMALLER to a LARGER unit you DIVIDE to get your answer Andy is going to fence in 100 square feet yard of his yard for a dog run. The perimeter of his fence not attached to the house is 363 feet. Each section of the fence mearsure 3 yards long. How many sections of fences does Andy need to completely fence in his yard? Example 7

6 in = __ft 1 ft = 12 in We are going from SMALLER TO LARGER so we DIVIDE Example 2
4 mi = __ yds 1 mi = 1760 yd We are going from LARGER TO SMALLER so we MULTIPLY __
6
12 6/12 = 0.5 ft 1760
x 4 _____ 1760
x 4
7040 yds _____ Example 3
50 fl oz = ___ qt 1 qt = 32 fl oz 50
32 __ 50/32 = 1.56 qt Example 4
8 gal = __ pt 1 gal = 8 pt 8
x8 __ 8
x8
64 pt __ Example 5
10,560 ft = __ mi 1 mi = 5280 ft 10560
5280 _____ 10560/5280 = 2 mi Example 6
880 yd = __in 1 yd = 36 in 880
