For Knowledge Purpose i will be explaining briefly the sizes of satellite dish and there conversion to different unit.. we have a very common sizes been used frequently which is meter for example we hear of 1m. 1.3m. 1.5m, 1.8, 2.4m, etc. also we hear of 60cm, 90cm, 8feet, 24feet, etc. yea if you have ever wondered just like i did sometime ago about feet. because i was a little confused until i understood the simple arithmetic that is been involved.
its a common mathematics that me and you know of in our early school days. now lets go there.
Get you pen and paper we are going to solve some mathematics today:
100centimeters ==> 1m
3.28feets ==> 1m
from the above we should now know that it takes 100cm for us to get 1m and likewise it will take 3.28feet before a meter can be obtained.
Convert (1.) 60cm (2.) 90cm to meter
1. Recall: 100cm ==> 1m
therefore; 60cm ==> Xm
100 multiply by Xm == 100Xm
60 multiply by 1 == 60
now we divide 100Xm by 60
100/60 = 0.60m
therefore 60cm = 0.60m
to convert to feet.
Recall 3.28 feet ==> 1m
therefore; X feet ==> 0.60m
3.28 multiply by 0.60 ==>
1.97X multiply by 1 ==> X
therefore 60cm = 0.60m = 1.97feet.
Do that of 90cm on your own.
from the above just use the procedure to solve and calculate your feet
Further Examples:how many meters is in 8 feet.
now we know that;
3.28feets ==> 1m
therefore; 8feets ==> Xm
3.28 multiply by x = 3.28X
8 multiply by 1 = 8
now divide through by 3.28
we have 8/3.28 = 2.4m
therefore: 8feet is = 2.4m.
concluding simple easy calculation...1.) whenever you are converting from feet to meter you divide the number of feet by 3.28
2.) whenever you are converting from meter to feet you multiply the number of meter by 3.28
3.) whenever you are converting from centimeter to meter you divide the number of centimeter by 100
4.) whenever you are converting from meter to centimeter you multiply the number of meter by 100.
whenever you want to convert from cm to feet you first convert to meter then you convert to feet..
