Question from Roy:

i have some land and its measured in rods poles and perches
how can i convert to understand it more

Hi Roy,

My standard reference for many questions is to ask Google. I typed 1 rod in meters into the Google search window and got the response that 1 rod is 5.0292 meters. This Google search also returned a Wikipedia page you might find useful.
