weekly blog post #5

this week we learned how to convert a metric to an imperial or vice versa.

The metric system is an internationally agreed decimal system of measurement. the metic is all about kilo, hecta, unit, deca, deci, centi, and mili.

this is how to convert within the metric:

1 millimeter = 0.001 meter
1 centimeter = 0.01 meter
1 decimeter = 0.1 meter
1 kilometer = 1000 meters

the imperial is only used by U.S and Canada and compromises of inches, feet, yards, and miles.

this is how to convert within the imperial:

1 foot [ft] 12 in
1 yard [yd] 3 ft
1 mile 1760 yd

this is how to convert metric to imperial:

Metric US or Imperial
1 millimetre [mm] arrow 0.03937 in
1 centimetre [cm] 10 mm arrow 0.3937 in
1 metre [m] 100 cm arrow 1.0936 yd
1 kilometre [km] 1000 m arrow 0.6214 mile


and this is what I learned this week 🙂
