In this activity, you will use your knowledge of **metric **and **imperial **units of measurement to solve some problems.

**These are the key facts you will need to remember:**

1 inch is approximately 2.54cm

3 ft is approximately 1 m

5 miles is approximately 8 km

2 lbs is approximately 1 kg

1 oz is approximately 30 g

2 pints is approximately 1 litre

**Example:**

Convert **6 cm to inches.** Write your answer to 2 decimal places.

As there are 2.54 cm in an inch, we need to divide by 2.54.

6 cm ÷ 2.54 = 2.36 inches

So, 6 cm = 2.36 inches
