CONVERSION OF

Measurement, area and volume

Metric to Imperial and
Imperial to Metric

There are times in everyone’s lives when
we need to convert some measurement, whether it be when purchasing carpets, fabrics, wood
or even despatching a parcel when the couriers need to know the package dimensions.  

In these times, when most of us carry a calculator in some form or other,
all you need to
know is the magic formulae – that’s where I can help!

The following will help you convert
measurements, metric to imperial, imperial to metric, volume, area, length
etc
