How To: Convert units of measurement

This video shows you how to easily convert units. The first step you have to do is setup a proportion between a known conversion (e.g.. convert 2.5 km to m: 1km = 1000 m, => 1 km/1000 m = 2.5 km/X m). The second step you have to do is solve the equation by taking the cross product and find out the missing value (x). (e.g.. 1 km/1000 m = 2.5 km/X m <=> 1 x X = 1000 x 2.5 <=> x=2500 m). That's it! Good Luck!
