## How do you convert units?

Summary: to convert units, construct a fraction that is equal to 1, multiply the original measurement by that fraction, and simplify.

**What’s a conversion chart?**

a tabular arrangement of the equivalent values of the weight or measure units of different systems.

**How do you convert units in math?**

Converting metric units of length

- 1 km = 1,000 m.
- 1 m = 100 cm.
- 1 cm = 10 mm.
- 1 m = 1,000 mm. These can be used to convert the units used to measure length.

### How do you convert units of measurement easily?

The important points are:

- Write the conversion as a fraction (that equals one)
- Multiply it out (leaving all units in the answer)
- Cancel any units that are both top and bottom.

Converting Values with Multiple Units Write down your problem. Find the conversion for one unit. Multiply your number by the conversion fraction. Cancel out your units. Multiply with another conversion fraction the same way. Cancel units. Repeat until the conversion is done.

**What are basic measurements?**

In the metric system, each basic type of measurement (length, weight, capacity) has one basic unit of measure (meter, gram, liter). Conversions are quickly made by multiplying or dividing by factors of 10.

**What is the basic metric unit?**

Basic metric units include the kilogram (the basic unit of weight), the liter (the basic unit of volume), and of course the meter (the basic unit of length—see below). Metric —or more often metrical —can also refer to the basic underlying rhythm of songs and poetry. So while the scientists’ measurements are usually metric,…

#### What are the measurements of an end table?

Standard end-table sizes range from 22 to 30 inches. With the arms of the average couch at 25 inches, this means that end tables may sit above the end of the couch. The end table should be equal to or lower than the highest point of the arm.
