Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Alison:

I am hoping to buy a cabinet, the measurements are 1120mm x 560mm, what is that in feet & inches.


Google will do this for you. Go to the Google site and type in 1120 mm in inches . The response will be 1 120 millimeters = 44.0944882 inches. Since there are 12 inches in a foot and 3 × 12 = 36, this is 3 feet 8 inches.

I hope this helps,
