Metric system



After taking the practice midterm I realized i need to know my conventions with the metric system. My dad is very good at these things so he helped me out.

100 millimeter is a centimeter

100 centimeters is a meter

100 meters is a kilometer

30.5 centimeters in a foot

1 meter is 3.2 feet

1 yard is just about 1 meter

1 mile is about 1.6 kilometer

1 football field is 100 yards

1 football field is 91.5 meters

12 inches is 1 foot

3 feet is a yard

36 inches is a yard

about 30 cm in 1 foot

this information will help me with my midterm. I will study it and it will help.
