Homework Help: math

Posted by Robin on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 8:29pm.

How do I convert 4 inches into yards?


4inches (1yards/36inches) = 4/36 yards


Just in case you wondered where 36 in. came from...

You must know that 1 yd = 3ft
Then you set the dimensional analysis:
the wanted is "yd".
the given is 4 in.

so... 4in.*(1ft/12in)*(1yd/3ft)=??

or 4/36 = ??

Can you see that in. cancel out,as do ft,leaving you with the wanted "yards"?


Thank you both so much!!! I get how to do it now.(:
