Measurement Conversions


An example listing in the table may be:

centimeters ----> inches ----> c.f.== .3937

(c.f. is just an abbreviation for conversion factor)

If you have 10 centimeters, just multiply by .3937 to get 3.937 inches.

If you have 10 inches and want to convert to centimeters, just multiply 10 inches by 1/.3937 [that is, 10 times (1 divided by .3937)] to get 25.40 centimeters.
