Multiplying English Measurement Worksheets
How to Multiply English Units of Measurement? Different units of measurements are used in different parts of the world. In England, the English units of measurements are used. Measurements units such as pounds (lb), ounce (oz), grain (gr), stone (st), gallon (gal), yard (yd), foot (ft), inch (in), and many more. Multiplying values with same units is simple. However, if you want to multiply values that have different units you will have to do some unit conversions. If you have two values one measured in feet and the other measured in inches. You will have to either convert the foot measurement into inch or inches into feet before multiplying. Without doing the conversions you will not be able to multiply to produce an accurate answer.
Introduces conversions between various units of English measurements. 1. Multiply 75 with 2 and write the product i.e. 150 qt under the same units. 2. Multiply 4 with 2 and write the product i.e. 8 under the same units. 3. Reduce to lowest terms i.e. 1 gal = 4 qt so,150 qt= 37 gal and 2 qt. 4. Add 37 gal to 4 gal = 41 galView worksheet
This lesson demonstrates how to multiply large English measurement units. 1. Multiply 15 with 8 and write the product i.e. 440 mins under the same units. 2. Multiply 15 with 8 and write the product i.e. 120 under the same units. 3. Reduce to lowest terms i.e. 1 hour = 60 mins so,440 mins = 7 hours + 20 mins. 4. Add 7 hours to 120 hours = 127 hoursView worksheet
