>>All right, this video is for

US to metric and vice-versa, so if you’re going to do

conversions from metric units to American units, or

American units to metric units, this is the video for you. So this is a table, we

have — we have distance, we have weight, we have

volume, we have more distance, we have more weight,

and we have more volume. Basically I’ve given you both

conversions; we have American to metric or metric to American. Now, the way you can

find these is just by doing a little

reverse division. Watch. If you take 1

and divide it by 2.54, that’s our first one right here,

hit Enter, you notice you get that right over here: 0.3937. All I did was divide them. So if you have this table, you can make this table

just by doing division. Okay, now onto the good stuff. If you want to convert yards

to meters, you do it just like we did the American units. So if you have not done that

video, give that one a shot, because this one’s going

to be a lot more brief — much more brief. Basically you want to get rid

of yards, so you put yards down here; and you want meters,

so you put meters on top. Remember, it’s just

the m for meters. So we go to yards to meters,

that’s our conversion. So we put one down

here, 0.9144 here; this way we cancel

off our yards. And then we multiply, which

gives us 91.44 meters. And that’s it. That’s all you have to do. Just like we did American units

is how we do American to metric. So give them a shot. I’ve got six problems

for you to try here. Try them now. Hit Pause. Alright, and those are what

you should have gotten. Now, the ones that are

a little different — this is something I

figured you’d want to know. These are applications. So if you have 60 miles

— and this is per hour. that’s what 60 miles

per hour means. MPH: miles per one hour. We want to convert to

kilometers per hour. So we want the hours, but

we need to convert the… miles into kilometers. So we put miles down

here, kilometers up here, and what is the conversion

from miles to kilometers? One mile is 1.6093, so one

mile is 1.6093 kilometers. Now, if we multiply

that 60 times 1.6093, we get 96.6 kilometers per hour. So the miles cancel, and that

leaves you with km over h. So kph: kilometers per hour. So try it now for the

reverse, let’s say you’re in a foreign country and you

have kilometers per hour, and you need to convert

it to miles. How would that look? Exactly. Same ratio, but

this time, we divide. So 100 divided by

1.6093, and there you go. 94. Let’s try that again,

100 divided by 1.6093… there we go, that sounds

better; 62 miles per hour. And then, now you

know how to convert… from metric to something else. So if you want to go from miles to kilometers you just

multiply it by 1.6; you now have kilometers

per hour. If you car said kph

and you want to find out what the miles per

hour is, you divide by 1.6, it’ll tell you what a good

approximation of the speed is. That’s it. Thank you.
