Nice job! You are going to spend some valuable time practising for the SATs Maths test.
In this activity, you will practice how to convert between imperial units of measurement and solve some worded problems using these conversions.
How do we convert between miles and kilometres?
Try to remember these key facts:
1 mile = 1.6km
5 miles = approximately 8km
And these methods for conversion:
Miles to km = Miles ÷ 5 x 8 =
Km to miles = Km ÷ 8 x 5 =
How many km are there in 20 miles?
20 ÷ 5 x 8= 32km
Other useful imperial measures to remember are:
2.5cm = 1inch
1 foot = 12inches
1 pound (lb) = 16 ounces
1 stone = 14 pounds(lbs)
1 gallon = 8 pints
Over to you now to have a go at some practice questions, use all of the information given to help you!
