Example 1: Convert 1.5 inches to centimeters.
The standard unit of conversion is given as: 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters.
Given to convert 1.5 inches to centimeter ==> (1.5 inches) * (2.54 centimeters)/ (1 inch)
This gives 3.81 centimeters!
Therefore 1.5 inches is equal to 3.81 centimeters.
Example 2: 1 day consists of how many seconds?
To find the number of seconds present in a single day, first let’s translate a day in terms of hours.
We know that 1 day = 24 hours.
and1 hour = 60 minutes.
This implies: 1 day = 24 hours * (60 minutes)/ (1 hour) = 1440 minutes.
Now, we also know that 1 minute = 60 seconds.
This implies: 1440 minutes * (60 seconds)/ (1 minute) = 86400 seconds.
Hence we get that 1 day is equivalent to 86,400 seconds!
