# Conversion Calculator: Basic Rules of Conversion

**Conversion calculator **can be complicated, so the first rule is If a large Unit needs to be converted into a smaller one. You should multiply. Since you have a bigger number and multiplication means to make it big.

However, suppose you need to convert a smaller unit into a larger one. In that case, you should divide it because the division is done to make the numbers short.

**Conversion of Measuring Units **

Suppose your sister needs 3 pounds. Now determine how many ounces make 3 pounds. Since we are converting a large unit into a smaller one. So we will multiply it as

3×16= 48

So 3 pounds included 48 ounces.

If we were to convert from ounces to pounds. The same number, but we divide it by 16.

So pounds to Tons by 2000. Always remember, from small to large, it is divided.

Large to Small, always multiplied.

**So the Liquid Conversions go by.**

1 cup(containing water or any liquid)

- 8ounces of any fluid =.237liters =16tblspoons =48teapoons
- 1pint=16 ounces=2cups=473 litres.
- 1gallon=3.7liters=8 ounces=4quarts.

**How to convert Celsius into Fahrenheit?**

The **Conversion **formulas are the standard form which is very used and also taught.

To convert from degree to Fahrenheit

Deduct 32 and multiply it by .556.

For example

50°F-32×.556=

It will be 10°C.

Similarly, convert temperature in the degree to Fahrenheit.

Multiply it by 1.8 or 9, and then add 32 to it.

30°C×1.8+32=86°F'

So the Fahrenheit value is 86°F' after Conversion.

**Conclusion**

**Conversion **rates are calculated by considering the number of conversions. Divide that number by the total added interactions. It is tracked into the same Conversion.
