Measuring length is one of the essential parts of education which can never cease to exist from education. For kids to learn about length, what better way for them to encounter different mathematical problems which aim at giving all sorts of understanding of the length. To measure length we use different kinds of units. Also if you think about it, length can be considered a small part of the distance. I don’t want to explain further but try giving it a thought! But then one might ask, why are there different units of distance and length? And the answer is they are no different, every unit is interconnected to others with simple conversions of course.
Let us take a look into some of the units of length-
Growing up learning math and getting to know about lengths and distances was really fun for all of us since we do actually use it in our daily life. The rule or scales we use in middle and high school are in centimeters. I agree it changes as we go to college but even so there is a need to convert meters or other units back into centimeters as it then makes it easy for users to draw on paper or drawing sheets for that matter. All this is evidence that a centimeter is just an import unit for length even though it is 1/100th of a meter.
The given equation will help you to easily convert from the numerical value of feet to centimeters. 1 foot = 30.48 cm
Our education system follows the metric system where we use meters in everything. But other than that the most common unit for length is a centimeter. So yes there is a need to convert from feet to the centimeter. We can observe this in our secondary school where we come across many numerical problems involving the units if feet but still at the end of the solution we have to convert the value to centimeter unit as it is the most commonly followed unit after meter of course.
