The Metric Conversion application is a menu-driven program. First, the program displays a Main Menu that states the purpose of the program and allows the user to select one of five metric system measurements or quit the program in the following manner:

Press the 1 key to convert meters to U.S. yards
Press the 2 key to convert kilometers to U.S. miles
Press the 3 key to convert kilograms to U.S. pounds
Press the 4 key to convert milliliters to U.S. ounces
Press the 5 key to convert liters to U.S. gallons
Press the 6 key to quit the program

After the user selects a metric measurement and the program confirms the entry is valid, the program prompts the user to enter an amount of the selected metric measurement (0.0 to 10000.0). For example, if the user selected the first menu option, the prompt message should be displayed in the following manner:
