#### Worksheet Overview

We need to know about the following common imperial units of measurement:

Length and Distance

1 mile = 1,760 yards

1 yard = 3 feet

1 foot = 12 inches

Mass

1 stone = 14 pounds (lb)

1 pound = 16 ounces (oz)

Capacity

1 gallon = 8 pints

1 pint = 20 fluid ounces

You might be asked to use this information to change between different forms of measurement.

For example, you might be asked how many pints of water it will take to fill three gallon buckets.

To answer this question, we need to look to see how many pints there are in one gallon.

1 gallon = 8 pints

3 gallons = 8 x 3 = 24

So, there are 24 pints in 3 gallons.

Let's try some questions now.
